Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Learning the alphabet is fun and playful here, and with sweet, inclusive illustrations that reflect author Lil Nas X's embrace of individuality. C Is for Country is a fairly standard alphabet book, but young readers who are fans of the author will see his personality on the pages, especially with the fringe and purple clothing and hat. Young fans of horses can enjoy his adventures with his pony, Panini. The book's tone is upbeat, and and it's full of warmth and fun.

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.
