Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This is the rare television program that can be enjoyed at any age. Although kids 5 and up will most enjoy the stories of the traveling families, younger children can watch to see the unusual animals and aren't likely to see anything disturbing. Watching the families work together to track animals, improve animal habitats, or try to get closer to the shyer creatures adds a fun twist to the usual nature programming. And seeing children their own age in the new settings having realistic adventures adds to the appeal for kid viewers.

Episodes do include scenes of family interaction, but any Nanny 911-style drama is completely avoided (although any parent who's ever traveled across the country for a week with a couple of young kids knows there were probably a few moments better off not preserved on film). Kids younger than 7 or 8 will want to watch with a parent, since they may spend as much time asking questions about the unfamiliar animals, places, and languages as they do watching, but that kind of interaction isn't a bad thing.

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.
