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.

Our favorite

Each evening at 5, my year old grandson and I watch this video. He is enchanted by the children. He doesn’t watch much tv and will sit rapt through the entire program. He loves watching the children the most. He knows the book too and loves seeing it come alive. This is NOT a scary video. The music is lovely and it seems to get better each time we watch it. My daughter and I are in love with the children who we realize are adults now. Susan Sarandon does a lovely job with the title story and so do the other singers and readers. I highly recommend this video.

Narration of books is good, one book is about monsters in the dark

I have watched some of this movie. We fast forwarded to good night moon. The Good night moon part is great. Thank goodness I watched this with my son because there are kids talking about being scared and a book about being scared of monsters in the dark.

This title has:

Too much violence
