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.

Great Read

A beautifully written, thoughtful adventure/mystery story. While there are some mature themes (murder mystery, alcoholic/abusive parent), they are handled tactfully. Kids will love the main character Mo, her sidekick Dale, and the whole cast of characters in Tupelo Landing.
