THIS IS A MOOSE is a whole lot of silly with a wonderful message: Follow your dreams and don't let others define you and your limitations. With humor and wonderfully comic illustrations, kids get the idea that they can be whoever they want to be.

Illustrator Tom Lichtenheld showed in Steam Train, Dream Train how wonderfully he draws animals, and there's an impressive array here in the diverse film crew, not to mention the beret-wearing, megaphone-wielding duck director.

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.
