Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series -- which is based on Patricia Schultz's bestselling book of the same name -- captures the beauty, diversity, and cultural vibrancy of about 100 of the places featured in the book. Viewers are exposed to the geography, history, and people that make each place unique, and they'll gain a new appreciation for the world's vast differences -- as well as its underlying interconnectedness. This eye-opening series is great to share with kids of any age, but be prepared to answer questions about things like unfamiliar dress, cuisine, and living conditions.
Is It Any Good?
There's really no end to the impressive sights and sounds viewers will find in this wonderful series.

If you watch with your kids, you'll find plenty of educational avenues, as well as opportunities to instill respect and appreciation for the world's diverse people and places.
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.
