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.

RIPOFF OF SHARK TALE

age 7+

the site's review forgot about the part where they leave behind the baby

I think the review by this site was appropriate, because it lets parents know that the polar bears do some things that are disturbing. But it left out the scene where the mom bear LEAVES BEHIND her baby, presumably to die. This was too much for my 7 year old, and almost too much for me!
