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.

Great fun for children and adults

I had such a fun time watching this. It is great for adults as well as children.The episodes are short and most of the time you want to see the next one right away. The only problem I see for children is explaining life in England in the 1800's. The lives of these characters is nothing like a child today. There are a few hard topics that will likely need explaining, like what a foundling hospital is and why a parent would give up a child as well as the matron selling some children to work whatever n the mills. When one of the girls comes back because she has escaped from the mill it got a little confusing. I am excited to introduce my grandkids to the series!
