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.

This it the true life story which became Dolphin Tale (the 3D Movie, released 9-30-11)

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and wish I had it when my 3 kids were in preschool or elementary school, but the events probably had not yet happened (they are in their twenties now.) Although I have not yet seen the movie, it was released today 9-30-11. I bet it will be a great movie, worth watching.
