Kids say (1):

Beatrix Potter's delightful nursery rhymes for the very young show off her talent with words. Each stanza is illustrated with a watercolor in a formal square or a soft circle. The pictures, unfortunately, are clumped two and three per page in this large collection.

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.
