Why is this not better known?!? Such a gem

What a show! It is so hard to find something for the 4-7 year olds and this has so much going for it! A great cast, a great story, lots of trivia for the kids to absorb, some magic, fabulous messages and role models. I can't believe this has been around and people are still watching Paw Patrol. This is an amazing find, definitely appealing to both girls and boys.

Muy entretenido y educativo

Muchos valores positivos como la colaboración, perseverancia, respeto a los demás. Muy alto nivel de los invitados de cada capítulo y enseñanza de los elementos que componen una obra musical. Divertido para padres e hijos.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4 ):

Preschoolers and their parents are in for a real treat in this engaging series designed to increase their awareness of the performance arts. It's not an easy feat to outshine the incomparable Julie Andrews on-screen, but this Jim Henson puppet troupe does just that with their infectious enthusiasm right from the start. Under the expert eye of Miss Julie and her accomplished stage manager, Gus, these students take field trips, meet pros, and, most importantly, work together to create and perform a musical of their own unique design.

Tangible learning aside, Julie's Greenroom posits to viewers that performance art owes its cultural richness to a general climate of acceptance and inclusivity. The five Greenies exhibit cultural and gender diversity (there's even a duck!), as well as varying levels of physical ability and emotional maturity, but every character has something valuable to contribute to the project as a whole. Together they learn to believe in themselves, cultivate their ideas and gifts, and weather the inevitable mishaps that put roadblocks on their way to success.

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.
