Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (6):

Just past the overly peppy writing, references to JoJo's music and fans, and simplistic conversations, there are some strong messages here about friendship, ego, and why people act out sometimes. JoJo and BowBow Take the Stage won't be considered an epic literary work, but young readers likely will connect with her both because of her fame and because they have probably been involved in similar friendship issues. The vocabulary will be a slight challenge for more advanced readers, but the ideas are simple enough for young readers to grasp instantly.

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.
