Reviews
"Emily is chockablock full of wonder with an appealing curiosity that will prompt children to ask interesting questions about their own world. Emily's voice, intonation and facial expressions sparkle with a natural energy. Parents, caregivers, teachers and early childhood education students will also find they have much to learn from Emily and the adults she meets throughout her escapades. The adults listen carefully to Emily and gently guide her, never hampering her inquisitiveness. Instead, they support her development of new knowledge using what she has already learned about the world. Rich with vocabulary and brimming with interesting experiences, each episode is worth a repeat visit!"
Dr. Mary Jane Eisenhauer, Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education, Purdue University North Central

"All films are of great quality and provide four accessibility options for the visual and hearing impaired...The programming is excellent and will appeal to young audiences to be used in any elementary classroom, media center, or public library."
Deidra Herring, The Ohio State University, Educational Media Reviews Online

"Emily is a bright and engaging protagonist, and young viewers will delight in her diverse adult and child friends. The filmmakers have created a warm and safe environment for this young child to grow and learn, one that serves [as] a model for children and their communities everywhere."
Multicultural Review

"Spontaneous...Emily asks a lot of questions and offers her own opinions. She is a charming, enthusiastic host whose sparkle is infectious and is always eager to embark on new adventures and be challenged. Viewers will be inspired to learn more about the subjects that Emily introduces and to try some of the physical and creative activities that are featured...Educational and lots of fun."
Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin Country Library, School Library Journal
