With the warm weather finally here, kids are most likely out riding their bikes and playing at the park, not glued to the TV. But a little bit of screen time each day is OK any time of the year. So with that in mind, here's what Netflix Canada is adding to its lineup of kids' shows and movies for June. Spoiler alert: Moana! (Which a lot of kids like even more than Frozen, believe it or not.)
Note: Age recommendations are approximate. Every kid is different—you're the best judge of what's appropriate and what your kid can handle.
Moana Best for: Ages 4+ In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain's daughter's island, she answers the Ocean's call to seek out the Demigod to set things right. Warning: The super-catchy songs in this Disney film, especially "How Far I'll Go" (sung by Canada's own Alessia Cara), will be stuck in your head all day long. Available June 20.

Uncle Buck Best for: Ages 12+ Comedy great John Candy gives a signature performance as a notoriously irresponsible uncle left to care for his brother’s kids during a family crisis.
