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.

An Incredible Teaching Tool & Fantastically Written

I read a parent review that states that there are scenes during which characters sleep together. No there are not! This book is incredibly sexually innocent. The two characters who "kind of like" one another, Emma and Jacob, are still in that awkward stage in youth--they don't even share a kiss beyond the same sort of kiss you would give a family member on the cheek. This book is a magical teaching tool for discussions involving discrimination of any kind, free societies, fair governments, good vs. evil, bravery, courage, friendship, respect for authority figures...every teacher in America should thank Ransom Riggs for creating such a perfect classroom series (and for writing with correct grammar--rare these days). Please ignore that absurd review from a parent who is obviously clueless and didn't read the book. I'm a mother, an educator, and a librarian. This is a fantastic series and a great installment!

This title has:
