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.

Fun, creative book for the whole family

I read this book aloud to my then 8 yr old and 6 yr old. My son would have been fine to read this on his own; my daughter (the 6 year old) benefited from me reading it to her. Fabulously fun and creative. There are lots of riddles that my son enjoyed trying to solve on his own. There is a definite good vs bad element to this story and it was fun to root for the good guy.
