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.

A little folklore and Spanish language

As a foreign language educator, I look for books that will sneak in learning as my students are having fun reading. This one does a good job, but was hard to get into at first because of all the characters being introduced. Loved the folklore that was added in and the fact that it took place in the 60’s. One of the minor characters in the middle of the book is said to have a relationship with another woman and to have kissed. Probably the most risqué thing in the book.
