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.

Just as awesome as the first book.

This sequel to a classic book is very imaginative.The Cat in The Hat himself was just as funny as he was in the first book.This book and of course,The Cat in The Hat are the best Dr. Suess books ever,and we all know that.
