Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids who are into sports, music, or acting will like learning about celebrities who did the impossible and rose to the top of their professions. The stories in Becoming are inspiring and show how the stars' tremendous amounts of perseverance and grit are the secrets to their success. The stars are pretty open and honest in their interviews, and so they also do a great job of showcasing the not-so-fun parts of being an elite athlete or entertainer. While the feel-good series is appropriate for young kids, many of the celebrities featured on the show aren't well known by young kids and will likely appeal more to their parents.

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.
