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.

Highly recommended series!

I absolutely love this series. We want nothing more than our daughter to grow up curious and with a love of learning. This series features 3 curious friends who basically use the scientific method to answer questions about the natural world that come up as they go about their day. Episodes are less than 15 minutes, which is perfect for younger toddlers. Highly recommended.
