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.

Warning: Promotes transgender in elementary age kids!

This book has amazing women like Amelia Earhart and Harriet Tubman. It definitely has a liberal slant focusing on liberal female politicians. The biggest shock came as I was reading a story a night to my little girls and suddenly come upon one about an elementary girl who is considered a hero for changing into a boy!!!! I was shocked to find this even remotely with the level of women in this book and to be glorifying it.

Misleading Commendation

Story # 1 is about a transsexual girl. Really? This book is supposedly for 1st grade girls and on up. Is this REALLY what you want your first grader reading? The book comes without any warning about content that may not be appropriate for all readers. Furthermore, your Commendation, which appears on Amazon, etc. caused me to select this book. Fortunately, I had the time to actually read it first. Unfortunately, not everyone does. I will read Common Sense's ratings with far more skepticism in the future.
