Erin Entrada Kelly's endearing illustrated chapter book about family, friendship, and courage is perfect for early readers. Kids will love Maybe Maybe Marisol Rainey's short chapters, charming illustrations, and relatable characters. They'll also appreciate the sweet, supportive friendship between Marisol and Jada. Marisol may be afraid of many things, but Jada never pushes her best friend to do anything that would make her uncomfortable. Instead, she reassures Marisol that she'll catch her if she falls. As the story progresses, readers will learn what it means to be a good friend and root for Marisol as she finds the courage to face her fears.

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.
