Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Seven Stories Up is simple and sweet; history-loving readers will enjoy traveling back in time with kind-hearted Annie and learning about the Depression. Some of the plot points -- such as Molly's maid being completely unconcerned about her charge running around with a stranger -- don't quite seem credible. Even so, the story may move parents to share their own family stories and have fun conversations about how much life has changed.

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.
