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.

Surprise ending

We love the series of elephant and piggie books. The repetition allows young readers to feel like they are reading as they get the cadence of the book. In most of these books there is a funny surprise at the end, and this one does not disappoint. Read more reviews. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17082833-i-m-a-frog The age of the child is different for Different purposes. For young children two or three, The parent has the opportunity to get into character and the kid has the opportunity to jump around and act things out. For kids who are learning to read - four and five, The repetition allows them to kind of know what is coming in so it helps them read. Also if it’s been read to them since they were two or three, it’s familiar content. Finally, the friendship between the unlikely pair is very sweet. One is worrier and one is more free, and they really care for each other. So it’s a great book on friendship and diversity.

Great book for young children

This is a great book to read to a child of any age. As a former library assistant at my high school(which also had every other grade below freshmen, down to kindergarten), I can say that children love this book. It inspires imagination and creativity in a very funny way. Even reading this to babies would be great, for there are lots of possible character voice opportunities. great for all ages.
