Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site has great information and resources about disasters (hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, fires, terrorism, and volcanoes) and disaster preparedness. A lot of the content is either made by kids and/or about kids. No commercialism, bad language, or sexual content to worry about here, though the topic and photos of disaster aftermath could make younger kids nervous.
Is It Any Good?
The site provides excellent content, but if kids don't use the back button well to navigate their way through layers of the site, they may get frustrated and have trouble finding what they need. The amount of resources and learning tools about disasters are worth the trouble, however, especially if a disaster has affected your area or family in some way.
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.
