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.

I'm giving this 60-minute "movie" 3 stars instead of 2 because it's totally harmless - no violence or sex or shameless product placements. But this has got to be one of the most aimless films I have ever seen. I love the regular Sid the Science Kid show. This...just meanders. I thought it would at least be educational, but it's only marginally so. My 4- and 6-year-olds, zonked out from a week of school and in need of some decompression time, thought this special was fine. I was more than glad to erase it from the DVR afterwards.
