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.

One of our favorites of all time!

We never grew tired of King Bidgood's in the Bathtub... and he won't get out! Our children are older now, but it was one of our favorites. Audrey Wood and Don Wood are masters

Unique and Playful Kid Story

The illustrations are phenomenal and even adults will find some new detail in each reading. The words are fun and build to a wonderful ending. When reading it out loud we made it as sing-songy as we could, and our son loved the repetition and silliness of the King. What kid doesn't enjoy a story about adults behaving childishly? And then the youthful character is the unlikely hero. Love, love it. :D
