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.

Awesome documentary

This is a documentary that will be best appreciated by older teens and adults. It would have made a fantastic story if it were fiction, but it is a true story, and it is absolutely worth 2 hours of your time. The flip from what the documentary sets out to find to what is actually uncovered is worth the viewing alone. Just watch it!
