Is It Any Good?

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

As reality TV goes, it's hard to beat a series that not only recognizes the efforts of hardworking charity leaders but also rewards them with funding for further outreach. Celebrity hosts -- including Derek Hough, Bethany Mota, Jillian Rose Reed, and Jenna Bush Hager -- seem genuinely affected by their experiences at each location, and many of the stories really are quite inspiring.

Give might be a hard sell for kids, since it's more of an emotional watch than it is an action-packed one. But if you can get yours to tune in, this feel-good show is an excellent segue into talking with them about kindness, generosity, and compassion and perhaps an impetus to getting involved in outreach projects in your own community.

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.
