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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this podcast.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Listen.Think.Leap! is an educational exercise podcast that teaches kids skills about movement, literacy, and observations. This is a great show for young kids, and will most likely be too "baby-ish" for teens. It could be very helpful in a classroom environment to get kids moving during a gym or English class. Because of each episode's short time length, these lessons could work well for kids with short attention spans or families who just want to take a quick dance break throughout the day. This show is completely void of adult content and entirely geared toward young kids, which may give parents relief in feeling comfortable enough to leave their child alone to listen to the show, if so preferred.

What’s It About?
LISTEN.THINK.LEAP! is an educational movement podcast that encourages several different mental and physical skills for kids. Geared toward younger kids, this pod teaches English skills like nouns, verbs, and vocabulary, as well as physical movement skills like dancing to a beat and hand/eye coordination. Episodes are short and range from 5 to 15 minutes. Each episode features a different skill, like "verb dance" or "silly narrative dance." Listeners match these English skills to music and a beat, with the intention of learning both simultaneously.
Is It Any Good?
This pod is a unique combination of mental and physical exercising, specifically for younger, elementary-age kids. In Listen.Think.Leap!, families have the opportunity to work on these skills together, and although adults will almost certainly already know these concepts, dancing and learning with the family will help encourage kids to think of education as a fun concept, instead of a chore.The lessons and their delivery aren't repetitive in the slightest, and while older kids and teens may find it to be too simple, this could be fun for families with younger kids to listen to together. Each episode covers several different literary skills and combines them with a physical movement to really help the lesson stick. Additionally, the show's message of ensuring that "every child has access to quality dance education" is admirable, and this pod certainly feels like a big step toward that goal.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about incorporating exercise into their daily lives. Sometimes moving around and exercising can seem like a chore. How can we as a family make movement more fun?
Are there any other places in your life where you learn to exercise your brain and body at the same time?
