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.

Good way to understand how hard logging is

Great to see how he overcame obstacles and came out on top. Also learned how Canada replants in logging areas.

A show about REALLY hard work

Big Timber introduces children to a world that most do not see. Extremely difficult, backbreaking hard work in a beautiful setting. The logging company and mill are family owned and most of the Wentrob’s kids work there. There are a lot of censored words, but the reality is that this is a real world work environment.
