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.

My 6 yo enjoyed

This certainly isn't the finest piece of literature ever written but my 6 yo enjoyed it. I'd recommend it for parents whose kids are interested in chapter books but aren't ready for the complex language found in some of them. No the Herdmans aren't the model of good behavor but there are plenty of worse role models out there.
