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.

Scary but real and amazing message

I don't want to shield my kids from the important messages. I don't think there is currently a better movie out there about the topic. In particular, the concept that humans ARE the environment is so important for the next generation to start internalizing now. It's ok for 7 and older but you'll need to discuss with your kids afterwards to make sure they got the takeaway.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

unsure...

I'm not so sure if I would watch this or let any children I know watch this. Environmental documentaries can be scary for adults much less children.
