Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

It’s nice to see the studious kids portrayed not as nerdy know-it-alls but as friends who like school and like to do well. These kids are balanced by the friend who wants to leave all homework until the last minute, but whose kindness, humor, and great instincts save the day more than once. All of the Bailey School Kids have a place -- a great message to send to young readers who might not love school either.

The stories are fast-paced and the vocabulary won't challenge older readers very much, but the younger ones will like being able to read most of the book without needing much help, and will likely be engaged the whole time.

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.
