Is It Any Good?

Kate DiCamillo's light, humorous touch and Harry Bliss's lively character illustrations make this tale of a little terrier's first trip to the dog park a great story. And it's a natural for kids facing new group situations, such as starting preschool or kindergarten. There's a lot to love in Good Rosie!, especially about friend-making skills and the fact that rough play may not be for everyone.

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.
