This is a great choice if you're looking for a podcast focused on social-emotional skills that's empowering for young children. Kids listening to Little Kids, Big Hearts will enjoy hearing about topics that are relatable to them through the voices of other children. You can tell that the host is an experienced educator as he guides the children through questions and conversation but still lets them take center stage. Some of the more fantastical elements, like the puppet characters and the land of the Qook-a-Lakas, will probably appeal most to the preschool/kindergarten audience, but there is a lot for older children to get out of this as well.

Little Kids, Big Hearts is designed to help kids express their feelings, engage in honest conversation, and learn about empathy and friendship. At the same time, it's still entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. This podcast can serve as a valuable resource for opening up a dialogue between caregivers and kids, and there are discussion guides for educators and families available on the website.

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.
