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.

One of the best ocean shows.

I think this show is tied for first of best ocean shows. It's tied with Jonathan Bird's Blue World. I really enjoy the music that's in here. There is some violence but that's mostly predator and prey. I hope you get to check it out sometime.

Blue Planet For All Families

Enjoy this BBC series because of it's down to earth approach to environmental issues . The series provides families with a fun and creative way to learn about the ocean environment that we share with creatures beneath the sea and not only is the series stimulating education wise, it also provides the importance of environmental issues. Great for older children ( 6 and up) but younger ones could have fun too trying to identify the different creatures beneath the ocean floor,
