Informative, compact, and kid-friendly, this podcast delivers news in a fun and approachable way. The Ten News breaks down the news into a digestible format that helps kids understand the context behind current events. News and social issues are made relevant by showcasing how kids are involved in social movements and media. Kids get examples of great role models, important issues that are relevant to their communities, and fun facts about a variety of topics. The audio quality and production are crisp and clean and the fun segments allow kids, teens, tweens and even adults to engage. It's a great way for families to listen to the news together and to talk about current events and how they shape each others' lives.

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.
