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.

ICDL: Multicultural Literature for Everyone

This diverse collection of picture books from around the world allows children to broaden their perspectives about other cultures. The interface is very easy to use and designed especially for children. An excellent resource!

Awesome resource for multinational families

Great site--perhaps not the most intuitive setup, but an incredible concept and fantastic tool for multicultural-focused families. If they'd rework the interface and make the books easier to read à la a more Nook, Kindle, or iBooks-like interface, I'd give it 5 stars. Otherwise, fantastic site!
