This story illustrates a valuable social-emotional message for its preschool audience. Cory's feelings will ring true for anyone who's ever been envious of another's time or attention. While he doesn't verbalize his emotions in direct ways, it's easy to infer from his actions how his feelings evolve as the story plays out. When eventually he reaches a breaking point of sorts, he makes an understandable -- if irresponsible -- decision because of his feelings.

Go! Go! Cory Carson: Summer Camp can start good conversations with kids about tough emotions like jealousy. Stories like this one help broach difficult topics by framing the trouble as the characters' while still allowing families to relate the messages to more personal experiences. As Cory sees the repercussions of his choices take shape, parents can help guide kids to consider more constructive ways to handle similar scenarios in their own lives.

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.
