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.

Too fast!

While the content was fine, the story, movements, and speech was so fast. At times, it was difficult for me to understand. The kids had a very hard time following the story because of the speed. Also, the story stops to talk to paleontologists, which my kids hated! They wanted the dinosaurs!
