This empowering story of a little kid saving older, more experienced crew members, is full of excitement, suspense, and positive messages about teamwork, bravery, and problem solving. It's a refreshing example of a girl breaking into a previously all-male workplace. And Ford's glorious art in red, yellow, and orange earth tones gives a warm glow to this long, dramatic day from sun up to sunset.

Three cheers for Three Cheers for Kid McGear! -- a triumph of girl power and gear power. It shows what you can accomplish when you have the right tools -- and the right girl -- to get the job done.

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.
