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.

Great book and Suggestions

It’s awesome and it also opens the mind of readers as they read words they usually don’t encounter in other literary works. These books contain mind opening experiences to think outside the box. My suggestions were close to the created space the author formed in the story. Like for example, if monsters can speak so can Rover. The monsters that came from the other dimension were like adventurers with magic and super strength. Since there is adventurers it shows a social system of its early form. Then, I thought what if Rover was an aristocrat the pretends to be a pet so that it can let lose. Later Rover is discovered by Jack about aristocracy and other monsters. Through my suggestion, do you see why this book and mind opening? Surely there is cons to children who are younger, because they copy the character’s actions. These actions are signs children show when they understand complex actions and words by reading. Even though this book has it’s cons, the pros are all about children ‘s growing experiences to think outside the box when they’re in a cubicle in the future.
