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.

geared for the girls

This story is geared toward the female reader. Fashion in the Victorian times discussed as well as the female point of view on subjects. There is one area of the book that may upset the younger readers.. when the girls try and leave. Would be a good talking point for parents. The girls actually end up becoming strong willed and determined characters.
