CommentsSimple, kind-hearted, universal and mature themes of perseverance and determination, transgender circumstances, journalism-editorial, different cultures, religious beliefs driven by rigid culture, supporting team work to achieve, celebrations of different weddings in a comedy context that is entertaining. The themes are laced with positive messages with educational merit. The themes of articles that changed perceptions of religious beliefs and transgender stereotypes, celebrating various cultural weddings, ambition driven actions that lead to success may be inspirational to the same class who may relate and be encouraged that it is possible. The themes have no sense of threat and are without any form of harm. Themes with elements that are infrequent with low impact will not disturb, upset, confuse children between 7-9 years. However, Parental Guidance is recommended to clarify context when necessary.
