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.

Such a Classic!

This is such a great book! I remember it from my childhood! I know a lot of Eric Carle books read to me from when I was young. Yes, the repetition and the simplicity in the words makes it qualify to teach young kids new words, which gives it a lot of educational value and lots of positive content all throughout the work. Every little kid should read/hear this story during their childhood!

This title has:

Educational value
