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.

Sesame Street: Ready For School!

My 3yo watched this before preschool. Where was Cookie Monster? My 3yo missed him a lot. It didn't have anything accurate about preschool. Elmo didn't learn his letters, have a nap, or have to deal with the fact that he would lose his morning nap. I prefer Lily and Tad's getting ready for school.
