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.

Animated documentary film is a trend I hope continues

This film offers a great alternative to the person in shadow with their voice changed to protect their identity. How about an animated film? The film is able to depict so much more as a documentary film because it is animated. I hope that this is a trend that will continue. It is beautifully drawn and stays with you slow and sad as it seeps into your thoughts. Leaving is hard, arriving is hard and separation is very hard.
