Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the voice of the little girl in the book is not tamed. The main character is always true to herself, no matter whom she encounters -- even a lion, whose roar is louder than hers. For little girls with big voices, this book serves as a celebration of their vocal abilities.
Is It Any Good?
This vibrantly illustrated book uses bold colors and simple graphics to tell a positive story about children with loud voices. Instead of trying to teach readers the importance of being quiet, it explicitly celebrates being loud. The illustrations are modern and pleasing, and the ending is funny and rewarding.
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.
