Is It Any Good?

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

This site is a powerfully comprehensive resource for parents, teachers, and librarians who want to find great books in the topics that typically interest kids, and who want to teach good reading skills to kids. There's so much information here that it's almost overwhelming. It may be best at first to start with your kid's interest and gradually fan out on the site from there. It would be great if site creators would add a section just for kids; right now the site is generally for adults to find books, activities, and reading tips for kids, but not for kids themselves.

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.
