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.

Like... whoa... When my school signed up for reading eggs and told my child to do homework on this, I was not expecting porn. I leave my child alone while I made dinner, came back to let him know and next thing you know I see an egg having sexual intercourse with a chicken! Now I have to explain to my 4 YEAR OLD that the chicken was not harming the egg. After playing it myself for educational purposes I ended up joining this gang called grove street. I double-checked the link I was sent and it was the right one. DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD PLAY THIS GAME
