Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

There's a lot of technical information in each show, as Kwon jumps from topic to topic within the larger framework of "food" or "transportation." But the facts being presented are compelling and insider-y, and the imagery pretty enough to hold the attention of those with an interest in the subject matter. It may be a little boring and/or confusing for younger kids, but there is little to upset them here.

Tweens and teens are likely to be very drawn into the subject matter, and may have a lot of questions for parents after watching. America Revealed may spark some interesting, perhaps even uncomfortable conversations, even while it may interest kids in helping to solve some of our country's greatest problems.

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.
