Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

The title alone automatically connects with kids: WAITING IS NOT EASY! -- especially in Elephant's case, where you have no idea what you're even waiting for. Elephant gets to moan and complain in all capital letters, and kids will adore the chance to shout out "GROAN!" Mostly because that's not the behavior most parents allow while waiting at the post office or in line at the grocery store. Let out those loud Elephant groans as you rush through the pages, new readers, and enjoy the awesome surprise at the end -- while your adult listeners gently remind you that Piggie is right: There are plenty of things worth waiting for.

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.
