A beautiful example of authentic diversity and inclusion in kids' media, this show is a fun, playful, and engaging look into Alaska Native culture and tradition. With care put into every production detail of Molly of Denali -- from the all-Indigenous cast voicing Indigenous characters to the all-too-catchy theme song with music from Gwich'in fiddler Brennan Firth and vocals by members of the Yupik Alaska Native band Pamyua -- this immersive audio experience doesn't miss a beat.

The major theme of teamwork running through each episode helps kids understand what it means to work together and define their "village" to feel supported and in turn support others. For fans of the TV series, this is sure to be a great screen-free complement to the show. Even adults will find themselves listening to one more episode.

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.
