Is It Any Good?

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

The bold colors and playful animation will immediately draw preschoolers into this charming show, and the learning concepts are just right for their age group. The main character engages viewers by addressing them as "Storyteller," directly asking them questions and waiting for a response. The critical pre-reading skills of shape and pattern identification are practiced in each episode. Viewers are also repeatedly taught to create a story by doing things like using their imagination to set a scene and adding in characters to solve a problem. Kids will enjoy the inquisitive and creative nature of the characters. Parents will appreciate the emphasis on creativity, teamwork and perseverance, as well as the lack of annoying repetitive songs and loud sound effects.

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.
