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.

Reminded me of my childhood

I grew up when Jan Lewan was a big name in our area. I remember going to local festivals and how the old ladies would swoon over him as he threw hankies into the audience. I was glad with how accurate it seemed... They made Rhonda's mom meaner than she actually was in real life. But I throughly enjoyed it!
