Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Some of the stories are far more fantastic than those in the books; for example, in one episode the girls go on a trip to the North Pole to experience a white Christmas (in the books, Madeline only travels as far as London). Younger children will enjoy the fun, and families can learn words in French, and -- thanks to Pepito, the boy next door -- Spanish.

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.
