Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

George's mom is a stay-at-home figure who would put Martha Stewart to shame. She seems to be forever making organic pumpkin spice muffins and taking the garden aphids to task with her fleet of organic gardening tools. And George's baby brother, Jr., simply idolizes George. Needless to say, the Shrinks live a very politically correct lifestyle that insulates their two children from the world.

George and his friend Becky are often found solving problems in the garden or in the town square. Generally George makes use of his gadgets and vehicles to find the source of the conundrum -- by and large his adventures aren't too far out.

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.
