un excelente show sobre hermanos

bueno este show no es tan educativo pero es un programa muy limpio y sano que nos muestra la vida de dos hermanos, charlie es un excelente hermano mayor que cuida a su hermana lola y le enseña cosas para que aprenda bueno en si este show bastante agradable pero lo que me impidio ponerle 5 estrellas fue una cosa que lola en ocasiones es muy exigente y mandona pero aun asi es un show bastante genial

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18 ):
Kids say (35 ):

The show's animation is beautiful; its simple drawings interspersed with real photographs give the show the look of a collage. The stories in Charlie and Lola are simple and sweet, with Charlie helping Lola to get to school on time, feel better when she's sick, and get over being cast as a leaf.

Lola always finds the positive side to her situations -- and Charlie is always there to guide her. Both parents and kids will adore this brilliant program.

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.
