Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

With a Japanese brush pen and digital coloring, LeUyen Pham has brought a playful, energetic exuberance to Julianne Moore's funny dialogue and sweet story of Freckleface Strawberry. This is a picture book that comes alive when read aloud and will tickle readers of all ages. It offers a valuable lesson about self-acceptance and will give families of school-aged kids plenty to discuss. The somewhat negative treatment of freckles may be the only drawback, especially for freckle-faced kids who've never before thought of them in a negative light.

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.
