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.

Babymouse is good for kids who don't care to read

My daughter has days where she hates reading and days when she doesn't. Babymouse is one book (or series) that added to the days she does like to read. I think she liked all the illustrations mixed in with the text.

Gets kids to read, but there are better series out there

Kids love it, but most of the books tend to have have a predictably negative series of events for the main character, with her getting in trouble or being unpopular without actually learning something from the experience. (e.g. being put in the top bunk at camp, and being last to get in the morning, thereby losing her tent points, and having to do dishes over and over)
