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.

Great Book!

I think this book is great! There are some things that little kids wont understand but probally for the better. There is some violence but I think this book is very good and a little heart warming.
