Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Best Job Ever is a series of short videos featuring people discussing the interesting work that they do. Most of the jobs featured here relate to education, science, and conservation, and all the people doing them are experts in their respective fields. Some of the episodes might be too information-dense for younger kids to follow, and on occasion the show features animals behaving roughly. But the overall series is informative and colorful, and brief enough to possibly pique the interest for more info about each job and how it's done.
Is It Any Good?
This interesting series highlights the different kind of work that people are doing to protect and conserve nature, make scientific discoveries, and learn more about different cultures around the world. Astrophysicists, marine biologists, conservationists, photographers, and other experts attempt to quickly break down what they do in simplified terms, and note why they're passionate about it. The National Geographic-quality video and imagery help illustrate their points. Their day-to-day work is fascinating, but what makes these jobs truly great are the overall positive contributions they make to the world around us. It's a fun, quick watch, but Best Job Ever will probably leave you wanting to see and learn more.
Did we miss something on diversity?
