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.

entertaining and educational

I read stories for children on a radio station. The Magic Tree House series was a great discovery! I know many children like these stories of Annie and Jack (each with their unique personality) visiting different historical times and traveling around the world. These enjoyable stories introduce children to so many great figures and events of the past.
