A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Shanna tries out many different professions without regard to traditional workplace gender roles. Shanna is African American.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this is a fun little series of interstitials, since each episode is only five minutes long, it's not the kind of show that kids will get attached to. When kids do watch, they'll learn a lot about many different professions courtesy of the enthusiastic heroine.
Is It Any Good?
The clues are basic enough that many kids will be able to guess the featured profession by the time all of the clues are given; those who can't guess will have a good time learning. These five minutes are lively and full of upbeat singing -- and provide a good conversation starter about what jobs kids might want someday. And it's commendable that Shanna acts out all kinds of jobs without regard to traditional gender roles.
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.
