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.

My daughter is 8, and an advanced reader.

She brought this and another book by the same author home from the school library. She is reading them for an AR test. I leafed through the pages and decided it was not a book my daughter needs to be reading. The obsession with crushes on boys and adult men is weird. Being worried/joking about eating a whale/ blubber and transfat or the constant boobie talk was all very odd. I am all for talking about these things with my kids, but this book does add any value to my child's life or in conversions we would be having about these subjects. I am also a bit concerned about how younger children may read this for AR tests and start to believe what is in this book is factual. It's fiction for sure - especially if you have judeo-christian values. Young kids will read this a seed is planted that it's OK to do these thing. In part because of their development age and also because they are tested on it. This is going back to the library.
