Kratt-style adventure is on full display in this exciting addition to the Wild Kratts library that's sure to brighten your season. Wild Kratts: A Creature Christmas opens with live-action Chris and Martin talking about creatures such as snowshoe hares and reindeer before their animated versions take to the screen and their rescue mission begins. As always, mixed in with some funny predicaments and ill-meaning villains are many teaching points that show kids about animal adaptation and diversity.

At the same time, the story touches on some meaningful themes that are just right for kids at the holidays -- most obviously, the joy of giving. The Kratts and their friends postpone their own celebration to help others, for one, and they're richly rewarded by the appreciative animals. It's also heartwarming to see Aviva's joy in giving her homemade gifts to her friends and their excitement in receiving them. It's enough to put you in a real holiday spirit.

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.
