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.

Sweet book, although a little sad.

I was drawn into this book by the cover illustration. I was in the children's section of the library with my 7 year old and I decided to read it first to see if it would be a book she could read (she reads at a fourth grade level). After reading it last night, I think she will have to wait to read it. I think when she is nine or ten, I will allow her to read it. I just think for her it would be a little too sad. I loved it and think it is a good quick read for adults. I cried as it reminded me of my own dad passing and different things we did before he died. It is a good book if you are dealing with death in the family.
