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.

I am a 21 year old male and just recently became a new father, I enjoyed reading this book when I was a child and I'm sure my son will enjoy this when he grows up. This book is simple to read and understand, Marvin is being asked politely, to please go now! Marvin is not forced to go and it will give the child ways to think about leaving. not just simply walking, but letting them think of other ways to simply go now!
