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.

Not like Ramona...

I hate seeing book characters take the weight of the world on their shoulders. Ramona is not bright and cheery like usual, instead her whole world crumbles. It teaches kids a good lesson though. Ramona doesn't understand how work takes up her mother's time, and volunteers her mother to make her a sheep costume for a Christmas Play. Her mother doesn't sew an actual sheep costume, she just throws together what she can find. This does not please Miss Spoiled and she justs complains the whole time. Not Ramona Quimby. A different little girl with the same name.
