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.

It's awesome!

Jason is an ordinary boy who quite by accident discovers that his cat can talk. The cat itself is a time machine who takes Jason on an adventure around the world to exciting places such as Italy, Japan, Peru, Egypt and more. In each place they visit, the two would right the wrongs that they encountered. It is an enjoyable book that teaches bravery, kindness, honesty and more. I am 11 years old and highly recommend this book.
