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.

this book is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i think that the hunchback assignments is a very good book where there is adventure and suspense on every turn of the book. I recomend that this book is good and not bad enough to where your kid will have nightmares, so pick this book off the story book shelf and get reading.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
