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.

Gets big laughs from 4 year old

Amelia’s antics get lots of laughs from my four year old. She may not get all the jokes but something about Amelia and her blunders tickles he funny bone. The stories end with the other characters showing appreciation for Amelia
age 5+
I think Amelia Bedelia books are fun! :) I loved them growing up and my kids are loving them too. I chose 5 and up because younger kids don't always get all the funny parts, but my 5 yr old does and thinks they are funny.
