This delightful, relatable story of believing in yourself and following your dreams puts a diverse cast of characters on center stage. Emphasizing talent and self-love, Not Quite Snow White shows that it's essential to never let anything or anyone keep you from pursuing your dreams, and that anyone can be anything, if you just believe. The colorful and detailed cartoon-like illustrations capture the changing nature of Tameika's emotions as the story's events unfold.

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.
