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.

Great entertainment for everyone!

Toot and Puddle books are among the most beautifully, charmingly illustrated picture books out there. I've often thought about how wonderful the illustrations would be framed in my 3 year old's room. This movie is based on the books and done by National Geographic, and has the kind of beauty and quality you'd expect from the books and National Geographic. Toot is a traveler, Puddle is a homebody and they make great friends and roomies. When Toot's Great Aunt turns 100, he wants to travel to Scotland and promises Puddle he'll be home in time for their Christmas traditions. Toot's adventures abroad and Puddles at home, and Toot's overcoming obstacles to keep his promise make for a wonderful story, and the animation is beautiful and charming. I wish there were many more of these films produced. I'd buy them all. And this movie and one of the books would make a wonderful gift.
