Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Although the information on is interesting -- and has an excellent purpose -- the presentation is rather dull, and the organization is confusing. There's no site-wide navigation, so users can easily get "stuck" in a section. Also, there's not much to do besides read; sister site is more interactive and more appealing. seems like it's stuck in the 1990s, save for the sophisticated and compelling Amistad animation.

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.
