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.

My daughter's favorite movie

My 5 year old absolutely loves this movie. It is a very well acted movie that teaches some lovely life lessons to kids. It has a few things in for the parents to giggle at which is always fun. To be honest, it is has become one of my favorite movies too

Kids Loved It

The whole family enjoyed this including my 6 year old girl and almost 8 year old boy. It holds up really well to today. It's very similar to Mary Poppins without the singing and a bit of witchcraft added in.
