This collaboration is a triumph, with Matt de la Peña’s simple, deliberate words and complex thoughts set on colorful pages in Christian Robinson’s eye-catching style to compliment Milo's drawings. Milo Imagines the World takes readers on the subway with Milo and his sister, and into the imagination of a child trying to understand the world around him. The moments when Milo realizes that his first impression might not be right, then re-imagines people's lives, is a powerful reminder about what we lose when we stereotype others.

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.
