"Pay no attention to Livymom unless you're one of those psycho crazy new parents who think that your kid performing letters and counting to ten makes them something special. I'm a parent of a now twenty-seven year old highly gifted child. She was talking in whole sentences at twelve months, reading at three, went to first grade at five, graduated from high school at 16 and college at 20. All this without the benefit of ever counting to ten (who cares if you don't know what "ten" really is) or reciting the alphabet (again, it's much better to know what a letter sounds like than to be a robot recitation machine). My secret? Nothing magic here just little if any television/videos before age three, lots of reading with at least one book every night before bed and the world's supply of music, especially Sharon Lois and Bram!
Now I'm a new grandma and what is the wee one going to do at Nana's all day? We're singing and dancing and reading lots of books. Sorry Livymom, but you're raising a pretentious little performing geek!! I raised a child with a love of language, books and music. And there's no better music for a child than the music of Sharon, Lois and Bram."

"I'm 22 years old and have two nieces (15 months and 5 years old). I also rented it from public library. THEY LOVED IT! No, the ABC's are not sung traditionally. I personally enjoyed the fact that they changed the melody.
Sharon, Lois, and Bram are about having fun and singing songs. They are like the old school Laurie Berkner Band.
This DVD is definitely not a teaching tool. The main focus is more so on the music than it is teaching the letters of the alphabet. The letters are pronounced and shown, but then a song or little skit follows. Visually...transitions from letter to letter are a bit weird. The technology behind it is very low budget. But most kids, unlike some grownups, are not concerned that the transitions are very 80's-90's. My nieces didn't care that some songs were from a concert or sung in front of a green screen. They loved the songs and loved dancing to them.
If you are not a child of the 80's who understands this crazy group of people with an elephant, you might as well get a different DVD. Since the simplicity of fun will clearly go over your head. But I highly recommend it because it is something that you and your child will have fun dancing to and learning new songs."
My 2 year old loves this wonderful sing-along!

"I got it used, and one day my daughter picked it out randomly to watch. Ever since then, she watches it at least once a day. This is a very good buy for children who already no the basics of the Alphabet, and love to sing and dance."
