Is It Any Good?

Sophie's ever-charming family has Christmas customs of its own, such as giving homemade presents and adding figures to a rustic crrche -- and readers will surely want to try out the Lucia cats.
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.
