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.

Book of love movie

I thought this movie was good it shows how grief affects us all no matter what your age and we can help each other to be able to live again. Of course not everyone should just give up responsibity but I think the message is do something that gives you freedom from fear for a while.
