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.

Such an Outstanding Book

AMAZING. Has LGBTQ+ (kids need to know anyways) Solangelo for life! Plot twists and no cuss words and mainly focuses on Greek and Roman mythology. Very educational. Some violence but not too much.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence

Amazing book for older kids

This book is amazing but I do really think it is for older kids. There are many violent scenes and described gore and themes that’s a kid wouldn’t understand. I would say 13 and up is a good age.
