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.

Excellent for kids who are a little older

Bought it because my daughter is named Seraphina. The content is a little dark but the storyline is fantastic! Tons of magic and drama. Shape-shifting, epic battles, and even some (dare I say) kid crush type romance. Would recommend for kids that are a little macabe or darker. I would NOT recommend for sensitive kids that have overly-active imaginations as there is definitely some sensitive subject matter.
