Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids, especially those with younger siblings, will understand the little girl's resentment in this story. Parents even more than kids will find themselves laughing aloud at the little girl's laments. And both will have plenty to talk about as they find out just what she means when she calls the babies "lazy little loafers."

While the girl's very original take on babies rings true, the book is a bit far-fetched and definitely tongue-in-cheek. The witty writing is embellished with equally clever illustrations created with gouache, acrylic with pencil, and photo collage, making this book enjoyable on many different levels.

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.
