Rack, Shack & Benny
reviewed by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media
Kids learn to resist peer pressure in a fun
way. Even when given permission to eat as many chocolate bunnies as
they want, Rack, Shack and Benny remember what their parents taught
them. They do what's right even when their friends do something else.
Adult comments: The veggies have individual characteristics, a sense of
humor, wit, moral development and they're lively and personable.
Excellent example of peer pressure and positive gender modeling.
Accurate content, respects kids thinking. Some stereotyping. Kids
comments: Children loved the perfectly silly songs, singing and dancing
at the end. Simplifies some big issues for kids. "I liked how the girl
carrot saved her friends and God put the fire out in the furnace." Kids
learned why "sissy" is a mean word.
