My Thoughts:

This DVD couldn't have come at a better time, as the snow just seems to keep falling her.  After the recent blizzard, where we got close to 3 ft. of snow, my girls, who are not big snow bunnies, preferred to stay in the warm house, snuggled up on the couch, watching movies and shows with me.  During our cuddle time, we watched a few of the episodes on this recent DVD release -- of which we had already seen prior on television, as well as a week earlier when I received this DVD to review.  But, the girls can't get enough of Chuck and Friends and could watch the same episode over and over, if I let them.

Do you have a The Adventures of Chuck & Friends in your house?  If so, this is one DVD not to miss picking up.  We own a handful of other The Adventures of Chuck & Friends DVDs that Shout! Factory has put out, but I have to say that this has the best episodes.  I have made a point after watching each one, to talk to the girls about the lessons conveyed in it, and how the girls can apply it to their lives.  This is one reason I love to watch The Adventures of Chuck & Friends with the girls, as the episodes always include positive messages and lessons that kids can learn from.
