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.

For anyone going anywhere

We started our daughter on Seuss young, and read something of La Jolla's most famous weekly. This is her favorite. What's lovely about re-reading Seuss is the catchiness of his rhyming scheme, we started reading this book in my daughter's infancy, she's nearly four now and knows it so well that she tacks on the final couple words of each line while I read. I always say my daughter's full in between 'be your name...', and the 'B' names Theo provided; this little improvisation always incites excitement in my little one; try it! I also substitute all male pronouns for female ones, 'Ready for anything under the sky. / Ready because you're that kind of a guy!' turns into 'Ready for anything [in the whole wide world]./ Ready because you're that kind of [girl]' I hope your little or big kid connects with this book, it's an inspiring one!
