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.

Kids relating to each other

These 4 children find themselves on a path to survival with only themselves to rely on. Shows the character and strengths between The 2 brothers and between a brother and older sister. They must be brave and rely on each other. Wonderful tale, surprising and unique. I read this to my 12 yr old grandson by video phone during this pandemic. We both enjoyed the story.
