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.

Our family loves it!

Our oldest is 8 and youngest is 4. The whole family loves it! The adventures are exciting and suspenseful without being too scary. Pictures on almost every page so it keeps our youngest happy and engaged if the story goes a little over her head. The main characters are respectful of their elders and kind hearted. Parental figures are present, it boggles my mind how so many shows and books these days have total absence of elders/parents. Great positive messages. My oldest loves to read them on her own as well as listening to us read aloud with the little kids. Only one of the last ones with the shadow "monster" was a bit too scary for our 4 year old but our kids are sensitive and don't have much exposure to anything violent or scary so may not be an issue at all for your family. We loved this series!!

Great Read Aloud

We searched for months to find an illustrated, interesting, gentle chapter book series to read aloud to my daughter before bed. These are wonderful! My daughter loved them at 3 years old and still loves them at almost 5 years old. We have been reading 1 chapter aloud at night for about 2 years. She scares easily but does not get scared before bed with these. Excellent for language development. I feel like they teach moral lessons and good character without their being an ongoing scary problem to solve or the main characters being naughty. The only things that might be considered a little scary or suspenseful are quickly resolved so readers are not left thinking the worst until the next chapter. They are also interesting enough to sustain her attention!
