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.

Misfit Pals and Loyalty

Our kids are in a Classical Education School that requires them to read A LOT. My six year old was blowing through a Level 2-4 reader every night for his minimum 20 minutes of reading, and was getting bored quickly. We saw an Amazon Recommendation and ordered the 1st Box Set. To say these books were a "hit" is an understatement. Our six year old son can't stop laughing while he reads them. While some parents may knock these books for their very boyish subject matter, the fact of the matter is, they keep a normal boy ENGAGED. And while there may not be a lot of moral lessons in each book, there is an over-arching lesson of loyalty and friendship. And in our book, lessons of loyalty and friendship go a long way in reinforcing how we raise our children to measure friendship and family. Five Stars!!!
