This bright, exciting special from its popular predecessor is just what the preschool crowd ordered. Mighty Express: Mighty Trains Race packs a punch with action and suspense, but it's not just a visual viewing experience. It tackles issues of communication and effective listening better than most shows for the youngest viewers. Without being preachy, kids see that bad behavior isn't rewarded. A plus for parents? There are some mild laughs -- like chicken characters changing the channel to their soap opera, Eggs of Our Lives -- and funky music for bopping along while you watch as a family.

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.
