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.

one of my favorite picture books

We are a cat loving family, and this book is one of our favorites. The book is well written and I love the characters. Many bad things happen to the cat, which may bother some, but I think it is realistic. My kids loved the book from a young age.
