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.

A most precious gem in a lost world, GOOD FOR ALL AGES!!

Today's common children's media and books have so many dark undertones and inappropriate subject matter that I am blessed to know that books like this still exist. even many books with unicorns are not harmless. The Uni The Unicorn series of books have simple yet powerful messages and are a book that will appeal to many ages. Uni is so cute and she cares about everyone and she is a kind, tender and innocent soul. this book shows children that believing is a very powerful thing and to not let others take that away from you. It's a very well made book inside and out and I would recommend it to anyone. The only possible problem I see however is that children must understand that no matter how much they want to believe, they simply can't make unicorns appear in real life as this book seems to say it. That is one thing I wish was not left up to the parents to explain to their children. But smart children should know this already. unicorns like Uni would surely make this world much brighter if she appeared in real life. Uni 4 ever!!!!
