Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids who are used to sleek, flashy sites might be put off by the very '90s design, although the inclusion of podcasts and streaming video brings the content into the 21st century. Or, for some old-fashioned fun, kids can read stories aloud, like the Russian folktale "Vasalisa and Baba Yaga" or "Jack and the Beans Talk," a twist on the classic that features some loquacious legumes. Kids should enjoy -- and parents will appreciate -- the site's inclusion of stories from a diverse array of cultures.

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.
