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.

Avoid if you can! Sexist.

My son loves these books - he’s 8. But if I would have known better, I would have never get him hooked on these books and tried to get him into something else … Because they are a super misogynistic and sexist book series! If I could save one kid from getting obsessed with these and save their parents from having to explain how wrong so much of the wording is, (ie: “super hottie”) etc., writing this review will be worth it.
