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.

Family tradition

I read this to my kids every year. They are 11 and 14 now, so it has been several! They still look forward to it and laugh out loud in several parts. I still cry along with Immogene at the end when Christmas hits her. And it makes us discuss the Christmas story at different levels every year. It is one of my favorite things about Christmas. Share with your family! But keep in mind that no one is "perfect" in their book. Just gives you something more to talk about.
