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 must-add for your child's library!

This is a beautiful book that tells an amazing story centered around the love of books. The characters are simple enough for small children but complex enough to make adults shed a tear and the story is beautiful and reinforces the importance and joy of reading. I recommend the book, the iPad app and the short film (15 min). All favorites in our house!
