My Thoughts…

My daughter loves animals  so I knew this collection would be a big hit with her. Featuring stories about Hippos, Ducks, Spiders, Frogs, and Cows are just the right mix for the 17 hilarious stories both fun and inspiring! I’m quite sure that this collection of classics will appeal greatly to children of all ages whether boy or girl.

This DVD supports reading skills, problem solving, and friendship. You’ll find many great features which include discussion questions and interviews with authors and illustrators of each of the stories found in this collection. There is also a Spanish versions of several of the stories which great for enhancing bilingual skills in children.
