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.

Learn the alphabet with Dr Sus

A is for Among Us, V is for venting, S is for sus, E is for electrical, R is for red is sus.

Start reading it to your babies!

Love it--my son knew the alphabet by age 20 months and could point out and read all the letters on car license plates and also read the eye chart at the health department because of this book. He was a big hit. Now my grandson will not let go of the book at age 5 months...he is mesmerized and seems to find it delightful.
