This wonderful book is full of small moments of change, and encourages readers to think about their own "aha!" moments where they can make better decisions for long-term happiness. The Big Cheese is a fun read-aloud that can prompt some great discussions about the difference between being confident and being obnoxious, and the power and reward in knowing when to listen and appreciate others. The idea that being loud doesn't mean you're the best (and might make you miss out on genuine friendships) is a good prompt for talking about introverts and extroverts, and the abundant silliness in the story is just plain fun.

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.
