Kids say (4):

Earnest fans of YouTube star Stampy will love this collection of trivia, easy puzzles, and simple activities, but it's a formulaic package designed to direct kids' attention back to the online world. STAMPY'S LOVELY BOOK is a spin-off of the Stampylonghead YouTube phenomenon, created by Joseph Garrett (Wonder Quest).

It's full of the kind of trivia that appeals only to committed fans: a graph of his new monthly subscribers over a two-year stretch, his online friends' likes and dislikes, and his accomplishments in other video games. The best part is the very brief spread for aspiring YouTubers: Garrett offers basic advice on creating online videos, pointing out that it isn't just fun and games. He describes planning and development and shares practical tips for recording, plus some guidance on mentoring beginners. Padding out the book are a half dozen simple activities you might find on a restaurant place mat -- for example, spot the difference, a maze puzzle, and a word find.

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.
