Full of twists and humor, this thrilling time travel story is fast-paced, suspenseful, and sweet, and may attract even reluctant readers. The Rhythm of Time, by musician, producer, Academy Award-wining filmmaker, and bestselling author Questlove and S.A. Cosby, brings us a tight pair of friends and two sets of loving, out-of-the-ordinary parents who support their children's individuality. The ending hints that there will be a sequel.

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.
