Is Ooka Island culturally responsive?

Our story characters include a culturally diverse range of characters. Students can create their own avatar using a wide variety of body shapes, skin colours, hair and eye colours, hair styles, and even clothing options, that enable students to ensure that their avatar reflects the way they see themselves. Students in the early years also see themselves in the themes of the book as it is locally situational on topics important to young students (e.g., neighbourhood, family etc).
