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.

A lovely green fable with amazing artwork

My 2-year-old and I have checked this one out from the library several times in the last few months. I probably should buy a copy already. My daughter loves the artwork--it is is so vibrant and she'll pore over the pictures, always discovering new details and asking new questions. I like the green message, which is well-done and not preachy, and I also like how empowering the story is for young children. Highly recommended!
