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.

Great Preteen Show. Think of it as a new Lizzie McGuire.

This is definitely not for children under 10. I've watched this while babysitting younger children, and they're not able to comprehend and follow along the storyline other than appreciating the sense of adventure. I say it's like Lizzie McGuire, because the characters are the same age and the shows are for a similar target audience. I didn't like the show at first because the original Spirit movie was my favorite animation ever. After watching a few episodes, the characters grew on me. As the seasons progress, there is definitely an increased amount of lessons revolving around coming of age and changes. There is romance, there is loss, there is perseverance. It's definitely a different vibe from the original movie, but it has also be come a great show that I find enjoyable to watch even without children around.
