Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This website promotes a solid program that reinforces the importantce of giving back to kids, but there's not much else to be found here. Parents get helpful tips on how to set up and successfully run a book donation event as well as book recommendations for their kids. Unfortunately, there isn't a ton of other information on the site. Most information revolves around videos of events and the nonprofit's background story. Parents won't find activities, significant information on volunteering, or other items to help further kids' philanthropic efforts. But if parents are looking for an activity that will provide togetherness time and a charitable benefit, throwing a Milk+Bookies party is an option -- and the site has all the info they need to get started.

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.
