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.

Very cute

There actually was a kiss in the beginning, between two kids on the bus

A Perfect series for the family to watch together!

My children range from 5 to 12, so it's getting harder to find things we can all enjoy together. The only thing "concerning" about this series is that it has some suspensful/intense moments, so be mindful if your child is sensitive. I love that there is no romance. Season 1 is all about friendship, family, and forgiveness. The main characters are kids and there are some instances of "bullying" type situations, but they always turn it positive. There are great teachable moments and examples of people working together. I hope the next season stays family-friendly!
