Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

In AFTER IRIS, Natasha Farrant does a terrific job of portraying the different needs and behaviors of kids at different ages, and raising modern family issues without preaching. There are no easy answers to the very tough problems they're trying to solve. All the while, as in real family life, there are plenty of warm and funny moments, disappointments, misunderstandings and surprises. It's a highly entertaining family story that addresses troubles big and small.

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.
