Is It Any Good?

It's remarkable that the allure of Sesame Street doesn't fade for young kids. Even children already in school and past the show's target audience of preschool-age tots will enjoy the character dynamics and messages in these sporty stories. Nearly every child has played some version of Hot Potato, and the littlest of viewers will relate to Elmo's desire to be No. 1 and also Abby's sadness that her best pal is being kind of a meanie about both winning and losing.

NBA player Blake Griffin appears in one scene to discuss the meaning of the word "champion" (and to squawk like a chicken). But it's not the celeb sightings that make this DVD fun to watch -- it's the adorably funny references to Rocky and Broadway and the authentic way pre-K friendships are depicted. Whether you have a budding pro athlete or a kid who prefers Chutes and Ladders, Be a Good Sport is an ideal collection for young and active kids.

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.
