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.

My daughter's school library suggested this book for a class reading project. As a parent, I'm disappointed with the choice. The dialogue between characters is difficult for a ten year old reader. The writing stye and subject is also boring.

Read it!!!

This book was wonderful! Inside the class and out. It is perfect if your child enjoys diaries or Revolutionary War books. Ann Rinaldi is a great author! READ IT!!!
