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 for kids dealing with their own fears and night-time willies!!

My girls picked this themselves just based on the cover. It is a great simple, imaginative and clever story that will really help your children understand how to understand and confront their fears. It is an awesome book to read also because the style is very different from mainstream,over-formulated books that are out everywhere. The rabbit is a great role model for any little kid who needs an example of someone small and quiet being a brave and cunning hero. If your child is not yet addressing fear of the dark or toddler anxieties, I would skip this. It is a little scary in a quiet & spooky kind of way.

This title has:

Too much violence
Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
