Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this gentle show illustrates timeless fables with important life lessons for kids like respect, self-esteem, and problem-solving skills. The stories are brought to life in crisp, black-and-white designs that are as appealing to the eye as the narrators' kid-friendly storytelling is to youngsters' ears. What's more, the show's brief format (each tale is about five minutes long) makes it easy to limit kids' TV time.
Is It Any Good?
Preschoolers and their parents will delight in every aspect of this soothing show, from the contrasting black-and-white illustrations to the relaxed narrative style that sounds very much like a parent reading a book to a child. The stories are brief and to the point (good news if you're looking to limit TV time), and their positive messages will hit home with kids.
Even if your tots are already familiar with these timeless tales, Nina's Little Fables brings them to life in a new way that will encourage them to sit and listen once again.
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.
