Very Educational
13 October 2003 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

I just can not begin to understand the negative comments about this show. There is nothing negative about it. My 18 month old son and I watch it every morning and we both love it. It teaches the pronunciation of words, the long & short sounds of vowels, etc. I think this show is wonderful and it will remain a part of my son's daily activities. (I even find myself watching it when he's asleep)
