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.

Vin Fiz Loved by 2nd Graders

Story Lady for 2nd grade has found kids love having this story read to them (3 years of classes now). They particularly like seeing pictures of the real Vin Fiz in the Smithsonian after they have heard the story. Story is kids-level action adventure. It includes a magical box and plane, otherwise there is no reason any parent should be concerned about this book. As usual for Cussler, there is a hint of history mixed with an adventurous tale; this time just right for kids. Looking forward to his 2010 children's book adventure about the race boat Hotsy Totsy, also featuring the Nicefolk children introduced in Vin Fiz..
