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 love this book about periods!

This is a great book! It is conversational, frank, inclusive, and friendly. It has lots of fun illustrations, and not too many words per explanation. I love how diverse the people are in the illustrations - in size, shape, color, ability, etc. The attitude is positive and affirming without feeling fake. It also does not pass judgment about how a person decides to manage their flow, and instead simply shares the options. I'm so glad that books like this are being published and was thrilled to share it with my 13 year old daughter.
