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.

Victoriana at its best

I am a huge Beatrix Potter fan and this book is really an essential element on a child's bookshelf. I should note that the risk of being eaten is a popular theme in this series and some children may find this disturbing. However, it should not be too frightening to most children. In any case, parents can easily skip the tales their children may find disturbing.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
not rated for age
