But the series also reflects some of the realities of contemporary sports. Many more young men than young women are profiled, and the majority of the feature players are either Caucasian or African American. In an environment in which athletes, inappropriate behavior, and greed are often linked, Sports Stars of Tomorrow reminds us that there are many good, talented kids working hard to achieve their athletic goals and to become solid members of their communities. The featured kids are truly positive role models not just for future generations of athletes, but for all young people.

Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly.

Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order
