This colorful preschool-oriented series is designed to teach children about respecting nature and protecting marine and coastal habitats. But the show, which is considered groundbreaking in Colombia because it features children of Afro-Colombian descent from a culturally distinctive part of the country, also highlights the importance of having an imagination and using critical-thinking skills when problem-solving.

At the heart of Guillermina and Candelario is the love of and respect for elders. It underscores how valuable the narratives and traditions they pass down are, and how they contribute to children's lives today. While the stories they tell are sometimes ethnocentric in nature, they all contain universal lessons that kids from all cultures can benefit from. No doubt that children will find them very entertaining.

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.
