Is It Any Good?

The rabbit in these silly, fun books with simple words and engaging illustrations isn't exactly a model for being honorable and kind, but that's probably more obvious to adults. Young readers will practice with word repetition on the pages, and the eye-catching illustrations are a ton of fun. The expressions on Jack's face are subtle but funny, and the cartoonish style fits the stories perfectly. In the Jack Book series, Jack doesn't seem to care about anyone else, and his behavior -- stealing the lady's purse, drawing with her lipstick, upsetting an alien, etc. -- has minimal consequences. The lady repeatedly calls him "bad," and sends him away, and her almost marrying a stranger at a dude ranch is a little odd. The how-to-draw section at the end of each book is a fun way for readers to spend more time with the series.

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.
