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.

My favorite wizard series

As a grown-up, I've read the entire series and I can't praise it enough. If you start it and are not pulled in by the time Nita meets Kit, then put it down and try again next year. I just started my son on book one. We are listening to it together and I gave him the option to stop if it is not interesting to him because he can be a bit picky . He gave it a thumbs up. I am enjoying this second time around
