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 towers that fell affected you and your community

“Jewell Parker-Rhodes sincerely knows how to make the reader dive in and become a part of a story she tells. I found myself rushing home to finish the next chapter. As we devoured the book, one chapter at a time, I saw my little ones understand the importance of diversity, history and family. They were so engaged in the history lesson that they requested to see videos and learn more about the towers that fell. My children thought of the many families that lost loved ones, how this happened and how we can prevent continued terrorism so tragedies like this subside as we strive for world peace."
