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.

I do believe in the power of reading at any cost; however,I allowed my 9 year old grand-daughter to choose this book when she was out of school for the Coronavirus. I started reading the book to her when we came across a few words she could not pronounce. I am thankful I started reading the book, as I would not have known the book is not appropriate for 9 year old. The book uses some very bad words, and describes behavior that should not be encouraged.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
