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.

Horrible series

I cannot believe PBS would air this program. This show does not teach Spanish. The show is about a girl named Maya and her brother Miguel who cause trouble for their family and friends. Maya's voice is enough to give you a migraine, and the theme song will get stuck in your head and annoy you. The program does not teach anything at all, it is not educational. If this show must exist, put it on Nickelodeon, not on PBS, where people come to be educated. None of my children like this show.
