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.

Documentaries are fantastic!

Heheh, to be honest nature documentaries are full of sex and violence, but since it is for learning, and it is performed by different species, i think its okay for kids... Anyways it might be bit off to explain what the elephants are doing for under 7 year old, so yeah i would wait until my kids are at least 7, or at least i would decide what parts of the documents i do show and what i do not.

Absolutely amazing and must see for every child

In a world of garbage TV and movies we feed our kids, this is an absolutely incredibly produced, filmed and narrated piece. The level of wonder and incredible imagery keeps my kids engaged at a very high level throughout. It shows the nuances of nature, the varied landscapes of our world and Sir David Attenborough proves again his ability to bring about the wondrous nature of our world to any audience, young and old.
