Who wants to be an astronaut? Or a vet? Or go on a jungle adventure? Then join up with El Perro y El Gato, two best friends who go from an under the sea encounter with an octopus to a not-quite-ordinary trip to the supermarket. Wherever they go, it’s always fun, and always in English and in Spanish. This dog and cat are going places!
El Perro (Dog) and El Gato (Cat) are bilingual best buddies. El Perro is always keyed up and El Gato is forever low-key, but that doesn't hinder their friendship. Together, the two share adventures that reinforce imagination, cooperation, and common daily routines and responsibilities, all while communicating through an energetic mix of English and Spanish. It's a more intensive approach to bilingual education than some programs that simply repeat a few foreign-language words here and there, and it's done so seamlessly here that little viewers won't have any trouble following the storylines. This DVD collection includes seven vignettes-which add up to 24 minutes of program content-placing El Perro and El Gato in settings that range from an ordinary supermarket to outer space. The animation will appeal to viewers in the targeted two-to seven age range, offering bright colors and uncluttered lines, and the storylines are paced just right to hold their interest. As an added bonus, the quirky humor usually includes some sly, dry tidbits for the adults in the room. -- Gina Catanzarite ©2012 Parents' Choice
