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.

Too moving

This book is a good book but quite complicated and moving for 7 years old. I advise to read if when you are 10 so that you don't cry over it on the sad parts.
