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 laughed and got sad, great book!

Very touching, funny, and just great! I did feel bad for Julie when her parents divorced, lost her best friend, Ivy, got teased at school, but it was wonderfully written, and a very great book. 5 stars, 8+! (I'm nine).
not rated for age

Great book to inspire greatness in your daughter
