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.

This is an excellent book for everyone child or adult

I deeply disagree with the "official rating" . It is one of the best books ever written for children. There is enough suspense, and drama for older ones, enough fantasy for the younger- and food for thought even for the parent;-) It is all against consumerism. My 7 year old loves it as do my much older ones. I think families can talk about the way they use time together, how they enjoy it , how they want to spend it next. They can ponder the message for hours. Nice book for entire family.
