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.

Lots of swearing

This book is amazing but there is a lot of swearing. Some violence but not a lot of blood (unless you include goblin blood).

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
age 16+

Great but not for kids

I listen to this as a podcast and let me tell you, it is hilarious. It's a great adventure with three friends who are trying to save their world from The Relics. This is full of inappropriate language and jokes that wouldn't be wise for younger generations.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
