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.

For anyone who loves a good sports movie, this one ticks all the boxes! The kids in this docuseries leave you feeling humbled at what they achieve on and off the court. It offers a glimpse into life on the Navajo reservation today, shared through the stories from the members of this community. Inspiring for any family to watch together; it’s sure to spark conversations about the value (and cost!) of a college education, the importance of family, and just the sheer joy of the game of basketball. Go Wildcats!
