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.

Amazing docu teaches kids about spelling

This movie was great. I thought it was acting at first. The kids are so funny! There was no violence, sex, or swearing (unless you you consider "crap" to be a curse word).Overall, a wonderful film. Lots of fun for the whole family!
