This charming, uplifting book builds on the story in Book 1, but you don't have to have read that on to enjoy this one. In Simon B. Rhymin' Takes a Stand, Dwayne Reed, a fourth grade teacher, and Ellien Holi revive the lovable title character from the previous book, Simon B. Rhymin'. It covers the kind of social problems its target readers may be just starting to think about, and offers an optimistic view of making change in your own community.

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.
