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.

Engaging, sweet, educational

I love this series. There is some romance, but depicted in a kind, respectful manner. Elizabeth is a teacher who sets out to make a life for herself on the frontier and finds a community and newfound love. The scenes in the classroom with the kids are very educational. It promotes a entrepreneurial spirit, learning, kindness, giving, compassion and much more! There is some drama involved, but not too much. We can't go a Sunday without watching now.
