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.

What were they thinking?

Why anyone has given this book a positive review is beyond me. There is no message of value here, only the mention of the word love once or twice. Parents allow strangers access to their child to get her to talk? They leave a vicious beast, admitted man eater to spend a night and terrorize her, then he eats the aunt, apparently the only sane member of the household and the girl goes to live in the jungle with the tiger. And some people gave this good reviews. No wonder the world is a mess.
