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.

Story is a fun ride! with important history along the way

We listened to audiobook and followed along in the text as a family read aloud. It was fun to listen to the light-hearted story, learn about the characters and follow the adventure. It was at the right level for our 8 year old yet engaging enough to keep our 14 year old involved. For our younger, learning more about the Green Book especially struck a note. Looking for more by Nic Stone.
