Bear directly address the audience as he goes through his day in the Big Blue House. My 4 month old giggles with delight as he "talks to her", explaining the lessons of the day. His voice is calming and friendly, and his language doesn't "talk down to children."
On this DVD alone, I have seen lessons on sharing, expressing your feelings, chosing words that do not hurt other's feelings, reading, vocabulary, story structure, different types of stories and ways to tell stories, types of books, use of imagination, and even confidence and how to overcome shyness. These lessons are woven through three eposides through the interaction of the supporting characters and clever and entertaining songs.
The songs on this DVD get stuck in your mind. Although the opening sequence is your typical "welcome kids" song, the ending sequence is a hummable, touching song between Bear and his friend, the moon Luna ("The Goodbye Song"). Other songs include the jazzy blues driven "Say The Words", a reoccuring song between Bear and Ray the Sun "Good Morning", a song that teaches story structure "Once Upon A Time", and a duet that supports imagination and the joys of reading "I Was Just Reading A Book."
The supporting cast play an important role, the "students" to Bear's wise advice. While they learn, so does the veiwer.Read more ›
There are three complete episodes of "Bear in the Big Blue House" on this DVD:
"What's the Story?"
A neat episode which Bear and his Big Blue House play host to the annual Woodland Valley Storytelling Competition. This episode contains a lot of interesting ideas about storytelling and has a lot to teach. This one has some fun humor in it too, involving some of the plots of the stories and in-jokes related to the characters.
"Words, Words, Words"
In this episode, Bear thinks about how important words are, and how sometimes, you just can't seem to find the right word for something. He also helps his friends in the Big Blue House to find their words to express their feelings. Harry the Duck (Harry: "Thank you, Mr. Bear." Bear: "You're welcome. And, oh, Harry, it's just Bear.") pays a visit in this episode.
"Read My Book"
Bear orders a new book for his Book of the Month club and ends up receiving a book about how to make slop! It turns out that he got Doc Hog's book, but now it's looking like he might not get the right book in time for the club. Our friends in the Big Blue House all suggest to Bear their favorite books for him to read at the club!
As far as special features go, the "Bear in the Big Blue House" DVDs are generally lacking, so it's a good thing that this is such a good show. The DVD has continuous play-through, "fast-play," which means that it can be used without having to access the menu. This is a standard feature found on most Disney DVDs and other children's releases these days. Naturally, there are promos/previews for other DVDs and movies.Read more ›
