This energetic tale illustrates the power of self-esteem and compassion for others. The main character in Isaiah Dunn Saves the Day is true to the boy that author Kelly J. Baptist created in the previous book, Isaiah Dunn Is My Hero. The primary lesson is how to be there for another person: Listen to them to learn how to reach them, set a good example, and be patient. This is presented through believable situations and characters.

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.
