Is It Any Good?

This slice-of-life series shows how a family, all the members of which have achondroplasia (the most common form of dwarfism), adapt their lives to an larger-sized world. As cameras follow them, they also share some of the challenges they face, many of which average-sized people are unaware of. Despite the tidbits of information about living life as little people, most of what is featured here are simply the day-to-day adventures of a family with small children. But the messages it sends about not allowing their size to keep them from living life to the fullest is invaluable.

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.
