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 classic that children can understand better than you think

Though it sometimes meditates on complex topics the fact of the matter is that many of the ideas that this book dwells on are not ideas that are going to be unfamiliar to children. On the contrary, I feel that a child will be more familiar with the concepts presented here than adults who have forgotten what it was like to live in a world of made up rules and bizarre rituals. Overall a wonderful book for all ages.
