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.

One of the most wonderful books for preteens

This book (and the rest of the Casson family series) is wonderful. They are all well-written, funny, and inspiring. Each character is quirky and lovable. Great book!
