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.

2nd graders liked it...and so did I! :)

I am a student working on my Elementary Education degree. I recently taught a lesson to 2nd graders and I read this book as part of my anticipatory set. The kids thought the book was a little dark, but you could see the excitement on their faces as I turned each page. The illustrations are excellent. The way the book was set up kept the children in suspense from page to page. They giggled a few times throughout and really seemed to like it. I also enjoyed it and the fact that it is an easy read.
