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.

Home is where the love is

A beautiful and timeless tale told in a fairy tale convention about the importance of connection and nurturing others. A curious and big hearted monk finds a strange girl asleep and curled up with a particularly ferocious goat. Beatryce does not know why she is there or from where she came, but she knows her name and that seems to have its own power. As Beatryce connects with an unusual collection of helpful people, she begins to learn more about herself and her part in a promising prophecy. The novel is set in a medieval like time beset by war and violence and several of the characters come to the story through violence. These events are dark and, while not overly graphic, are intended to have impact.
