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.

Sweet Valley High promotes Christian values!

Sweet Valley High is a heartwarming book series that promotes Christian values. Both of the twins featured in the series are active in their local Baptist Church and are leaders in their youth group. Both girls live according to Jesus and the gospel and are very positive role models for young children. I am a strict parent when it comes to media for my children, but I believe Sweet Valley High is a wonderful book that instills faith in children from all backgrounds.
