The show is based on the bestselling book series, Ordinary People Change the World, by Brad Meltzer and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos. It is an educational and entertaining show that teaches children about historical figures who have made a difference in the world.

The show follows the adventures of Xavier Riddle, his younger sister Yadina, and their friend Brad. The three children live in a fictional town called Elmwood, where they often face problems and challenges. However, they have a secret museum that helps them to solve their problems. The museum is magical, and when the children are facing a challenge, it transports them back in time to meet a historical figure who has faced similar challenges.

Each episode of the show features a different historical figure. Xavier, Yadina, and Brad meet the likes of Marie Curie, Harriet Tubman, and Neil Armstrong, just to name a few. The historical figures are presented in a fun and engaging way, helping the children to understand complex ideas and concepts. The show also includes catchy sing-along songs that help to reinforce the lessons being taught.

Overall, Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum is an excellent show for children. It teaches history and important values, such as perseverance, kindness, and empathy in a fun and engaging way. The show is aimed at children aged 4-7, but it can be enjoyed by children of all ages. It is a great example of how children's television can be both entertaining and educational.

The show's animation style is colorful and engaging, making the historical figures come to life in a way that makes them relatable to children. The episodes are well-written, with engaging storylines that keep children interested in what is happening. The show also includes young versions of the historical figures, making them more relatable to the children watching.

The voice acting is exceptional, with Aidan Vissers (who voices Xavier), Zoe Hatz (who voices Yadina), and Wyatt White (who voices Brad) all doing an excellent job. They bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to their roles, making the characters feel alive and relatable. The show also features the voices of some famous actors, including Tony Hale and Henry Winkler, who play historical figures in some episodes.

One of the strengths of the show is its emphasis on problem-solving. Each episode presents a problem that the children need to solve, and they do so by learning from the historical figures they meet. For example, in one episode, the children have to find a way to overcome their fear of trying new things. They travel back in time to meet George Washington Carver, who teaches them about the importance of experimentation and trying new things.

The show also emphasizes the importance of empathy and kindness. The historical figures the children meet all exhibit these qualities in different ways, and the children learn from them. For example, in an episode featuring Abraham Lincoln, the children learn about the importance of standing up for what is right, even if it is not popular.

In conclusion, Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum is a fantastic show for children. It is entertaining, educational, and helps children learn important values that will help them become better people. The show's animation style is engaging, and the voice acting is excellent.
