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.

One thing I’m confused about

This is a really good series! My son got into it. Ok, it’s mostly fighting but it’s hilarious! But one of the books is called the voodoo vultures from Venus. I’m not gonna let my son read that book.

A Great Replacement for Screen Time

We recently cut out nearly all screen time for our 4 year old and found ourselves reading "picture books" over and over again for hours at a time. Our 4 year old will gladly sit and have a picture book with paragraphs read to him for up to 45minutes--but how hard is it to find a picture book that can balance illustrations WITH good non-truncated content? Also, as others have noted, super heroes are so alluring but difficult to find in an "age appropriate" not-too-violent, not-complex-story boarded way. Enter Ricky Ricotta! So happy we found this series of books that provide an exciting (but great for younger eyes and ears) 20 minute read.
