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.

Such a Great Program

My son and I love The Power of We! It talks about Race in an age appropriate way as well as giving children ways to help to be an Ally and an Upstander. I love the video clip that they use to show how saying that a SuperHero has to be a certain way because of how they see the majority on tv does not mean that is right. I love how it shows support. My son goes around singing the songs.
