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.

An older classic that still entertains

My boss mentioned this movie as a favorite from her adolescence and eventually forwarded me the link on Youtube (yes, you can watch the whole thing on Youtube). I had never heard of it before, but was pleasantly surprised. The production values aren't very high, but the story is nice, the music is fairly good, and my kids enjoyed it immensely. A new hit in our house!

It's too bad that this movie does not get any air time any more. It has great message. Plus, who doesn't love cute, furry animals singing? Great family classic.
