Our take: My 3 kids have all grown up on PBS television. Caillou has been around since my older children were little and they still enjoy watching the episodes with my 4 year old. We recently planted a vegetable garden so in the episode with the Scarecrow, our kids were asking if we needed one near our corn! The waterpark episode was a hit, and the fact that Caillou had friends with special needs really made for great discussion on how to treat all people with kindness and respect! Martha Speaks is new to all of the kids and is a really creative twist on teaching kids vocabulary and context! Super Why is also a new series to us, but is fabulous four our preschooler in learning keys to reading! The kids got a kick out of The Cookbook as they are all interested in helping in the kitchen with meals, measurement, etc…and the rhyming chef just set all 3 kids into rhyming mode the rest of the day following the show! Now the 4 year old is asking, “does (word 1) and (word 2) rhyme?” I love it! Great DVDs, pick them up now and store them away for Christmas!
