Everything there is to love about reading aloud is reflected in this darling series that's as sweet as it is simple. There's the excitement of delving into a new story, the way it inspires imagination, and, of course, they joy of spending time together. The caliber of guest readers may not wow kids in the audience, but it certainly helps make the show really fun for grown-ups to watch as well, counting Stana Katic, Paula Abdul, and Tamara Taylor among the drop-ins.

What will wow kids and adults alike is the way the series turns the books' illustrations into moving animation that really propels the stories while staying true to the originals. Couple that with celebrities with stage training and a knack for expression, and you'll find Bookaboo an exceedingly enjoyable and worthwhile show for you and your little ones.

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.
