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.

Masterpiece Theater for the Family

The adventurous story kept the whole family entertained. I appreciated the complexity of the characters, and how they all forgave each other their weaknesses and boosted each other up. The series also sparked a productive family conversation about racism and colonialism.

Review isn’t quite accurate

My kids, 8 and 12 loved this! We read the book together, saw the movie and then this came out, all in succession. They are enjoying comparing the differences and similarities between each. Just a note, there was the “S” word and there was a fair amount of gun usage and violence in the second to last episode. That isn’t mentioned at all in Commonsense’s review.
