Nick News With Linda Ellerbee

Nick News With Linda Ellerbee

Spring 2007 Television
Ages: 6 - 14 yrs.
Network: Nickelodeon
Review:
There was a time when the evening news worked as both a great source of information and as an educational tool for children. These days, ratings driven-type stories and complex cultural events can make it tricky territory to navigate for kids. For 15 years now, Nick News has offered a topical and thoughtful alternative with its timely series. Linda Ellerbee has honed her craft well, offering peer-to-peer discussions, candid interviews and celebrity commentaries on today’s top issues. Recent topics such as Surviving Middle School and Children of the Storm are handled with sensitivity. While some topics are explored more thoroughly than others, the show makes the perfect segue to jumpstart important discussions with your child.
