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.

We read this book in my first grade class together. The students enjoyed it and sang enthusiastically during the song. They enjoyed having a song inside the book. This book gets you excited when Penny has to wait so long to sing to her family. When they finally sing together, it's exciting. The students were able to relate to Penny because they have to wait sometimes.
