The Hunger Games or Horton Hears a Who!?

The next time you find yourself weighing the pros and cons of The Hunger Games or Horton Hears a Who!, log into Common Sense Media. This nonprofit site reviews movies, books, apps, games, websites, TV shows, books, and music, and provides secular, age-specific recommendations and color-coded caveats. What’s also especially useful are the reviews by parents ("Parents Say") and kids ("Kids Say") and a garden-variety 1-through 5-star rating for kids’ media.
