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.

Annoying issues for seniors with this good ap

The writing is so tiny that it is difficult to read, even with good glasses. Then they put the tiny white writing on a pale pastel background. Very difficult for ANYbody to see. It's almost as though they want to make it harder by making it difficult for seniors. I enjoy the sessions, but not when they trip me up using these tactics.
