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.

The best

I can't find any other positive figures as these book series somewhere else. This book introduced law terms as in the other books. I like the humor and fun in the animal court in the series books. It is also a fast pace, and my boy can't put down to dig out what happened in the end. Wish to read more books like this series.
