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.

perfect for young children

I just vaguely remember this, but I remember how bright this was. Young children would like nothing better. While the parallel between this story and themes like sibling rivalry will need to be explained to children, they will be understood once explained.
