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.

Sweet, attention grabber

My 2 year old daughter, who hardly ever sits more than 5 minutes, will sit through the entire move. She always asks for “baby Jesus” or Ang Ang. Cute storyline

Wonderful movie that your family can watch over and over.

I am a grandfather of a 4yo but she started watching this when she was only 3. She asks for it over and over. It is a wonderful short film to watch to calm everything down before bedtime. We must have watched it over a dozen times and it really never gets old. The animation, at times, is breathtaking. To those who complain of violence (brothers fighting) and swearing ("Mother of God") their children are apparently raised in a convent. We take our faith very seriously but there is nothing in this film that is objectionable - instead it is realistic and warm.
