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.

Recipes for Girl Power

My precouscious 6-almost-7-year-old loves this book. She combs its pages constantly. If this isn't her Bible, it is certainly fuel for her manifesto. Although its audience is much more diverse than its title, this book is great for rough and tough, strong-willed-women in the making. I'm sure Ruth Bader Ginsburg would have pulled this off the library shelf had it been published back when. If you have Dangerous Book for Boys, this would make a great friend on your shelf. I marked it "6 and up," but I'm sure Dads, Moms, Grandparents, Guardians etc would have a great time reading this to any age child. I'm a so-called grownup, and I love it too.
