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.

Another great Llama Llama book

Llama Llama Time to Share is another great book by Anna Dewdney. Llama is visited by Nelly Gnu, his new neighbor and doesn't want to share his toys, especially his llama doll. Eventually, he finally realizes that he can have more fun with Gnu if he does share. This book teaches children about the very valuable lesson of sharing, which we all should do. I also enjoy Dewdney's cute illustrations and wonderful use of poetry. Another wonderful addition to her series.
