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.

One of my favorites

This show is great. It teaches imaginative storytelling. The interactive game segments engage kids to build reading comprehension skills - to remember the sequence of events in Pinky's story, to choose an appropriate title for the story, etc. Each episode highlights a vocabulary word which they define and use throughout the show. It features a smart, creative, and resourceful girl as the lead character. It's also one of the few shows that features urbanism, such that they live in an apartment building in a dense city. It's funny, the animation is cute, and it's appropriately paced and edited for young kids. Highly recommended.
