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.

Our 4yr old Loves them - She asked to be Nancy Drew for Halloween

Our 4yr old loves this Clue Crew series. She began listening to them on audible and now is asking us to buy the books after finishing what was available on audible by herself. We love how the mysteries turn out to be genuine mistakes or pranks gone wrong instead of intentional acts of stealing or death. We also love how she is already finding connection with other women leaders like RBG as she learns they also grew up reading Nancy Drew. We love the reading comprehension she is developing by attempting to solve the mysteries through out the story and then recites back to us later on what really happened in the story. Even our 8 year old tunes into these Clue Crew books when his book shelf is bare. Great job - building an audience for Nancy Drew early without inappropriate content!

We just finished Scream for Ice Cream

This was the first we've read of the series and it was a great introduction to Mystery for our daughter. We enjoy mystery books and have read some Nancy Drew in the past but we weren't sure our daughter was ready for that yet, but these proved to be perfect. A mystery to be solved with several false leads until the end, and always at a fun level with abit of adventure. I'm thrilled to see how many there are since our daughter is such an enthusiastic reader.
