Roxy's loving family gives her advice and support in this easily accessible story. Roxy and the Ballerina Robot has solid reading supports to encourage independent reading or follow-along reading for kids of various reading skill levels. In the read-to-me option, the narrator's voice sounds slightly robotic but not enough to be distracting. Roxy and her family are multicultural, talk to each other with respectful language, and resolve conflicts in a loving way. Though the story is based on a materialistic dilemma, Roxy does end up learning a good lesson, and the family's interactions show strong modeling for how to resolve inevitable conflicts within a family.

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.
