Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This upbeat picture book asks provocative questions that should be good conversation starters for kids and adults. Measuring a Year: A Rosh Hashanah Story is a fun holiday book, but it's also a clever way to get kids to think about all the changes and accomplishments in their lives as time passes: What stands out as important, what has the most meaning for them, and what could they have done better? There's a lot of substance in this book, delivered with a light touch and Zara González Hoang's kid-friendly, cartoon-like illustrations.

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.
