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.

Need more like this!

My 4th-grade daughter and I just finished the show (the whole 9 seasons and movies). Great characters, relationships, and storylines. I wish there were more series like this for us to watch. My daughter enjoyed it even more than Little House.
