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.

I want every girl to read this book!

Caroline Paul’s mission is to inspire girls to confidently and unapologetically pursue adventure. Part memoir, part adventure skills how-to, part fun graphics, part quotes/features of other adventurous women and part journal, this book is a delight to read. Yes, some of her adventures are dangerous, illegal and foolish-but she's quick to point these out. She encourages girls to not necessarily do the same things she has done, but to have the confidence to be bold. The writing is as entertaining as it is inspiring. My daughter loved it.
