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.

Be aware: Page 41 and 57 inappropriate for kids

At Page 41 the 7th grader says that he had a wild notion that they were going to talk about SEX..and at page 57 the boy says “ I believed in Santa Claus too,once..” Definitely not appropriate for a 9 years old. Be aware!
