A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Decent amount of time dedicated to teaching preschoolers concepts like reading maps, baking, grace and courtesy, tidying up, plant watering, and learning about everyday discoveries like insects.
Teamwork gets things done. Real treasure doesn't shine like gold, it's the time you spend with your loved ones. Follow directions to get the best results. Be curious about the world around you. Take time to dance and have fun. Be kind to others so that they feel respected.
Becuase the characters are animals, there's not a lot of human diversity represented in this series, but when there are children shown, they appear to hail from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Female and male characters are given the same amount of screen time.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Growing with Lottie Dottie is a show for preschoolers that is a spin-off of the series Lottie Dottie Chicken and the books of the same name. Concepts like map reading, baking, discovering things in the garden, drawing and coloring are explored. Mild peril like someone driving a boat too fast, causing a character to fall into the water, but nothing scary or too wild happens.
Is It Any Good?
Appropriate for the youngest viewers, this series has some educational plusses, and it's got enough variety to hold attention. The narrator translates what the birds on screen are saying -- their clucks and peeps are unintelligable, but cute. Growing with Lottie Dottie is tame enough for sensitive viewers without losing its spark. Little ones will look forward to seeing what's going to happen next, while adults can be assured that the content has some very basic educational benefits.
