Is It Any Good?

This entertaining series is designed to help children understand the realities of pet ownership. It highlights the fact that having a pet can be lots of fun, but reveals, in some detail, the work that goes into making sure the animal is safe, happy, and healthy. It also shows the various kinds of care that different animals require, and reminds children about the importance of maintaining basic personal hygiene after handling them.

These lessons are presented with the help of real kids, making it very easy for young viewers to understand. The hosts also underscore key points in upbeat ways. My Pet And Me serves as a great starting point for talking about pet ownership with your family, and to remind them that no matter how cute and cuddly the animal is, it will require a lot of work, commitment, and love.

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.
