"This is a cute video. My son is a little young for it to hold his attention the whole way through, but he enjoys the singing and dancing a lot.
It should be said that the title and packaging are a bit misleading. It's not really about counting. Rather, there's an actual storyline involving a Mary Poppins type character named Stella losing her clock numbers in her travels. Barney and his pals help search for them, ending up at the library. There, they read books and act them out as characters in the stories. It's much more a plug for reading than for math, but it is fun.
I was pleasantly surprised at my son's enjoyment of the video. He likes the Spanish track, too. Fine for the little ones in the house.
One of the best Barney videos.

"I had this video for all three of my kids and they loved it. My youngest watched it so much that my VCR finally ate it so I purchased this DVD. Very educational and fun to watch."
Not very educational

"I am giving this 3 stars because my son loves Barney, and they are the only dvds he pays attention to. But this video was a big disappointment. He will not learn anything from this. There is not nearly enough attention placed on numbers to have labeled this a counting dvd. If you are looking for something to help teach your child to count, try Meet the Numbers from Preschool Prep. It lacks the appeal of Barney, but they'll learn to count in no time."
