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.

Good for Everyone but very Sad at parts

Movie was really good for kids until around half way when faced with the harsh reality of life when 3 becomes 2. Parents with emotional children should be aware.
