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.

Not as good as the original Scrambled States, but ...

My daughter loves both of the Scrambled States books, though we both agree that the first book is a bit better. Younger kids aren't going to get all of the jokes -- there's an opening bit about state abbreviations that my daughter thinks is hilarious, but doesn't really understand -- but there's so much great detail that it doesn't matter. And everyone can sympathize with Georgia, who suffers from stage fright ... until the big moment comes along.
