These brightly colored pages hold a strong message about being yourself and paying attention to what really matters, and bolster that with a challenging vocabulary to craft a great read-aloud story. Nerdycorn takes what could be a difficult feeling -- the other unicorns making fun of Fern and leaving her out of their fun -- and turns it into a moment of power for Fern. She discovers what's important to her and how much she wants to be herself, and the others see just how much her individuality has to offer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
