My Thoughts:

This DVD sure did come in handy over the weekend, as it kept the girls entertained as we drove around looking for strawberry picking.  This DVD included various segments that teach little ones about manners, and are chock full of celebrities making appearances from Zac Efron, Tom Bergeron, Mark Ruffalo, David Hyde Pierce from Frasier and so many others.

Out of all the segments, my girls both got excited about the one with Elmo and Zoe, and was about Zoe's pet rock.  ELmo kept getting jealous as Zoe's pet rock was the center of attention.  While the girls didn't want to admit it, they have felt this way, as they are starting to not like to share friends and like to have their friend's attention when they are playing.  I made a point when we got home to talk about the DVD and segments the girls saw.  We talked about manners, using "Please" and "Thank yoU", sharing and so much more.  

Since watching this in the car, my girls have since watched it a few more times, and can't get enough of their favorites Sesame Street chracters, Elmo, Zoe and Cookie Monster.  If you love sharing these wonderful educational DVDs with your presschoolers and have a collection of these DVDs at home, then you will want to check out this new release, to pick up and add to your growing collection.  While I personally found a few of segments dragging out, the girls were both engaged from start to finish.  They even got crazy, as they danced to the full length video, "Let's Eat," which is included in the special feature section.
