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.

Love it

I got this book from a friend for my 10 month old baby. I read it to him all the time he loves the colours and the pictures in it. It also has a really good meaning about being different and that it’s ok to be different. I think it’s a good idea to start reading books like these to them when their little so as they grow older they know not everyone is the same and you don’t have to try and be someone that your not.
