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.

Through a Child's Eyes

My children hated this book. My girls are very sensitive and when you look at picture books it's important to think about how it will look to children who can't read. Until the very last page, the pictures are all very scared and then suddenly at the end, the adult is scared of the mouse. Research has shown that children aren't going to remember the ending, they're going to remember everything else in the book (per research in Nurture Shock).

Too much violence
