Best show for littles

Nature based, so sweet and made well. Slow movements are a refreshing change from the other shows promoted for littles. My daughter laughs, sings, and follows the stories so well. Highly recommend!

Sweet Calm Show

This is a perfect show for kids starting off with TV. Calm and not over stimulating, sweet stories, positive messages, a positive father image, and cute illustration.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This series will have immediate appeal for anyone who's been touched by McBratney's stirring words in his classic story about the love between parent and child. Happily, Guess How Much I Love You stays true to the book's watercolor-style animation, giving the impression that the characters have just hopped off the pages onto the screen. The show's unhurried pace and simple stories are a treat for both parents and preschoolers, which makes this a great option for cuddle time with your kid.

Of course, little of the show's emotional aspect will hit kids' radar; instead, they'll probably focus on the gentle characters and their adventures, which send them out into their world in search of answers to their many questions. "What does spring smell like?" "Why do the flowers bloom?" "Can I touch the stars?" No doubt your own preschoolers have their own set of such queries, and in Little Nutbrown Hare and his companions, they'll find kindred spirits for their virtual explorations of his world -- and, with your help, could be inspired to set off on real ones within their own community.

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.
