A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Be adventuresome through reading, writing, and using critical-thinking skills. Geronimo and his friends are all likable characters with generally positive outlooks on life.
Products & Purchases
The new Geronimo television cartoon is promoted here with a short video as well as the show's theme song. There's a "buy" tab on the books section here that moves kids from the Geronimo website to the publisher's home page. Kids can put desired books on their wish list or send a book recommendation to a friend's email account.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this new fan site for the popular book series star and budding television character Geronimo Stilton already has quite a few fun features to explore, but there's more to come. Currently in Beta version, there are games to play, some portions of books to read, a video trailer for the television series, and some writing and art activities. But some other features -- such as an e-book, app, blog, and more -- aren't yet active.
Is It Any Good?
Geronimo Stilton fans will find lots of reasons to look around and hang out on this colorful site. The games are fun and lightly educational, the other features are at least worth a glance to see what's already there and what's coming up, and the book synopses will keep new fans busy finding and organizing their upcoming adventures. For those new to the world of Geronimo and friends, especially parents, the lengthy explainer of who he is and what general themes his books try to include (and intentionally leave out) is definitely worth the read.
Online interaction: Kids can only interact with kids whose "nicknames" (usernames) they already know. There's no way to exchange private messages on the site; messages are sent through email addresses entered on the site to send recommendations.
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.
