Is It Any Good?

This story is nicely told, book-ended, like The Princess Bride, with an adult telling an illustrative story to a skeptical child who needs bucking up. The merits of being "different" are emphasized, as are the difficulties of moving, finding a place in a new school, and following a passion. Other kind messages are also touted. Santa notes that every society needs good rules, but too many rules can be a bad thing, and forgiveness is a great way to show compassion. Blizzard is a sweet tale that will resonate with grade-schoolers.

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.
