Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this wildlife series offers stunning looks at the incredible endurance of a variety of animals who undertake journeys of epic proportions. A veterinarian and his team of experts follow in the animals' footsteps to understand and document their lengthy trips. Mating rituals are mentioned occasionally, and some scenes show animals attacking and eating others. This show offers a multitude of educational opportunities for families, but parents may want to brush up on their knowledge of animal behavior before watching so they can answer kids' questions about what they see.
Is It Any Good?
Incredible Journeys offers a dramatic look at wildlife in its most natural state. Beautiful videography and fascinating facts combine to make this an enjoyable educational experience for the whole family. That said, parents may find themselves answering some basic questions about animal behavior for young kids during scenes of animals hunting eating prey or discussions of mating rituals.
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.
