Is It Any Good?

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

The generation that grew up watching this beloved show will be delighted that their children can grow up on it too. Gullah Gullah Island is a feel-good family show that's exposes young viewers to a culture and community most people know little about, but it has all the singing, dancing, and kinda-corny acting that little kids love in their favorite shows. It's a great starting point for conversations about diversity and further reading about Gullah/Geechee culture. For the latter, you don't have to look too far – a quick internet search for star Ron Daise will lead you to his treasure trove of Gullah culture preservation.

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.
