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.

This is not a appropriate book.

Kids have so many things that attack their innocent minds. The first book in this series was good. But this book is not good half way through it becomes vulgar. I dare not finish reading for I myself would never subject myself to such intimate things. Children books should spark imaginativity and growth. But this books exploits them to things they only should know on their wedding night. Sadly I am finding that as a series continues it can start well but then down spire rather quickly into negative themes. I recommend this and I will also do so myself that I will thoroughly investigate each book in a series before even beginning the first book. No it is not as bad as some. But we do not want to compare it to the worse books out there. We want our children's mind to stay pure. I would not recommend this book for children or adults. I would recommend "Anne of Green Gables" and the book "Briar and Rose and Jack." The books I listed are fun and appropriate for all ages.
