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.

Fortunately, the milk

It has bad guys in it. The story isn't true. There's toys that are things from the story. My favorite part was that the father got home.
age 6+

Great fun!

A must-read if you like silly stories, fun stories and/or great read-aloud chapter books! Perfect intro to science fiction if you're a fan of the genre, but still a laugh-out-loud tale if you're not. Essential reading for the 6-to-12 year old crowd.
