"In this excellent video, we are given a situation that many parents should consider: not letting their child wander away from them in a large store. In this video, Big Bird and Maria go shopping in a large mall-like department store. Somehow, Big Bird wanders off and Maria gets worried. This is THE video for those who want to know how they can prevent this from happening. END"
Great Video even after the 100th viewing!

"Every morning we watch a Big Bird video and my son never tires of it. I like the video because of the muppets (of course) but also because the material presented is excellent...a song to learn your phone number, what to do if you get separated from a parent, caring about other people. Really this is a nice video."
Terrific education for parents and kids - but not a sermon

"After my disappointment with Elmo's Magic Cookbook, I was a little reticent to view any of the "Kid's Guide to Life" videos - I was afraid they would be badly-produced and full of platitudes. I needn't have worried - this is a terrific, entertaining video with the potential to create dialogue between you and your toddler. My son (almost three) and I watched together, and enjoyed it as much as a regular Sesame Street episode. In the story, Big Bird and Maria go shopping at ABCD Mart (shot in what must be a real "Mart" store.) Before they go, Maria makes sure Big Bird understands how easy it is to get lost, and how important it is to stick together. Then they discuss what to do if they get separated. She teaches Big Bird his Granny Bird's phone number with a song, and tells him how to identify people who can help (store employees, police.) When Big Bird gets lost chasing a wayward skate, he finds a store employee, who helps him find Maria again.The style of this tape is very like a Sesame Street episode. The songs are very entertaining - even the spoof on "Maria." (hey, they had to do it sometime!) and because the production values were very good, it was easy to compare to real experiences in later discussion. Frances McDormand was excellent, didn't play "celebrity appearance" at all. I highly recommend this one."
