Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

Many years after its controversial debut, this updated version of a now-classic tale of a little girl with same-sex parents comes across as a sweet, gentle message of inclusion and acceptance. Laura Cornell's bright, lively illustrations add a lot of visual appeal to Lesléa Newman's quiet celebration of loving family life.

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.
