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.

It's a little heavy

I read this book because my 5th grade daughter was reading it with her class at school. She said it was really good even though she was only part way through. I feel like the subject matter is a big heavy for 10yos but apparently her school district thinks it's appropriate because all 5th graders in the district read this book. It did have good role models and educational value when it came to the history of early America but there was quite a bit of violence, anger and sadness in the book.

This title has:

Educational value
Great role models
Too much violence
