Movie Reviews

Wonderful video for teaching beginning reading/phonics!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video is wonderful for teaching beginning phonics, and lots of fun as well! Also great are: So Smart: All About Letters (great for teaching letter sounds, names of the letters can come after sounds are learned), So Smart: All About Shapes (great for concepts and sight words). Once letter sounds are learned and your child is recognizing words, Hop on Pop (Dr. Suess) is also wonderful! (Yes, I'm a teacher!) The "Your Baby Can Read" video is also good for toddlers/preschoolers when part of a broader program teaching phonics. Enjoy!"
You may as well read your child a book

"This video is the worst I have ever purchased. My 2-yr old sondoes not even enjoy it. It is basically just pictures from classicDr. Suess books with an occasional unrealistic animation. The reader's voice is dull. You can read these books to your child and it will be much better! We love Dr. Suess, so we were very disappointed with the low quality of this video."
Who says you can't play with words?

"My son loved his Dr. Seuss books so much we decided to try a video. We chose this one because he was working on his ABCs at the time. He LOVES it! I see other reviewers haven't cared for the nonsensical ABCs, but our son's highest rave is "silly", and he loves to play with letters and words (think of Raffi's "Apples and Bananas" song). His favorite part is the Mr. Brown segment, which he watches while reading along in his own Mr. Brown book. Yes, it is more of a video of still pictures, but so are many of our older Richard Scarry videos, and he loves those as well - I think of it as strengthening his attention span. I would recommend this video for those children who already love their Dr. Seuss books, and for parents who prefer non-battery operated toys - it is classic, it is simple, and it is effective."
A big disappointment
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This video was not animated like the classic Chuck Jones features such as "The Cat In The Hat" and "The Grinch". My daughter was rather disappointed to see the camera scanning over pages of the books she already owns along with paper cutouts of the characters floating around as a cheap replacement for animation. We give this video a thumbs down."
