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.

Funny and Heartwarming, by author of Just Grace books

My nine-year-old and I liked this book a lot. Last year, she read nearly all of the “Just Grace” books by the same author. Dreamer, Wisher, Liar was also a level she could have read alone (she reads at “S” or so in school), but I’ve been looking for some high-quality chapter books that I would also enjoy to read to her at night for some bonding time and this was it. I love that she laughed out loud at many parts, but it also had some more serious (but age-appropriate) topics of dicussson.
