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.

Absolutely Precious

An absolutely precious story for both children and parents. The complexity of the relationships and characters in this story are so well done. This is not a fast action/adventure, but there is plenty suspense; even more so for those who love animals (and especially stuffed animals). It's by far one of my favorite books my son and I have read together. Magical in its simplicity. A wonderful story about friendship and how we all deal with conflicts, disagreements, and fears. We've read the other two in the series, and my 7 year old son has re-read it now on his own about 3 times. We're even going as Lumphy and Stingray for Halloween this year!
