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.

My 6 year old and I loved this book

This book held both my attention, as well as my 6 year old daughters. We solved one of the mysteries early on in the book, but weren't totally sure if our guess was right until near the end. One thing that confused us was that the secret code key didn't work. There was a twist at the end that I really liked. We are very picky about book content and I'd recommend this book.

My daughter loves this book and has read it four times already. She is begging for me to find out when book 2 is available. It's a very cute story and very entertaining. My 7 year old loves this book while her older sister loved Junie B. Jones. My 7 year old didn't like Junie B. Jones series as she complained that Junie was too mean and rude.
