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.

Inappropriate language for recommended age group

I have to admit, I only got through about 5 pages with my 8 year old son. We read novels together at night. There were several instances to inappropriate adult humor within those first few pages and I stopped. The story line may be okay for 8-12 but the language is not.
