My Thoughts:

The Adventures of Chuck & Friends is not just for boys.  Both of my girls are huge fans, as are some of their other girlfriends.  There is something about this wholesome show that peaks a child's attention and keeps them glued to the television screen as they watch each fun-filled episode.  And, like other family-friendly shows that air on Hub TV, this show not only entertains, but also does a great job at teaching young viewers about working together and team work.

When I first told the girls that this DVD includes the "ghost stories" episode, Bella was a little hesitant to watch it.  That was, until Savannah quickly chimed in and recapped the show, which they have seen a number of times already. :-)

I have lost count on how many times we watched this DVD in the car this weekend while out and about.  All I know is that my husband was repeating lines on our way home from errands on Sunday. :-)

If you have a "Chuck & Friends" fan in your house, this is one DVD not to miss, when it hits store shelves on June 3rd.

And, get ready for your kids to run around the house singing the rap sing-along that makes up the bonus feature of this upcoming DVD release.  I can't tell you how many times a day I hear the girls singing "We did it!." :-)
