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 great coming of age novel!

It's a great coming out book, it lets kids see the bible from a different interpretation and points out very clearly that you can be both christian and gay. This is a book I've put away until my kids (ages 2, 4, 8 and 9) are slightly older.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
