Editorial Reviews

Jakers! is a celebration of the joys good friendship can bring while the excitement of adventure and imagination inspires kids to learn from their own experiences. Through Jakers! children learn about life lessons and each episode conveys a moral that kids learn through daily experiences. Each episode of Jakers! is set in two distinct places and times: 1950’s Ireland and the present day.

We are big fans of Jakers. The kids really enjoy watching this. Jakers is all about storytelling. The Grandpa is telling tales of his youth to his grandsons. Since this is set in Ireland, the animals have a bit of a brogue and use Irish sayings. After the cartoon, real Grandparents tell stories of their youth. This encourages families to share the past.

I don't understand why but my daughter just loves it. We own all the 5 DVDs so far on the market and almost every books also.

At very beginning, I bought a ready-to-read book (level-1) of this serious accidentally: "Piggly makes the pie". Although she was just several months over one years old and hardly could understand most of words ( we talked to her in Chinese most of the time ), it soon became her favorite book. The book is very good. It has little picture icons to help the little kids in reading, e.g.: apple, window , goat, etc. all shown by both words and pictures in the line.

PBS also has a "Jakers" stories website for little kids. There are 4 stories, reading by grandpa "Piggley". Now it has been our bed-time stories club every night. If you like, you can go and try it first.

Now we read the book, watch the DVDs and go the PBS.com to meet our grandpa Piggley every day!

we don't have kids but my husband actually stumbled upon this show one sunday morning when we were without cable and we thought it was adorable! i recently bought it for my best friend's 2 year old daughter and was so happy to get an e-mail saying that she LOVES jakers and is always asking "watch jakers?" i know how kids get about a favorite show/dvd, so i figured if my husband and i liked it then it would definitely be a hit with parents and kids.

Mel Brooks and company are great story tellers. Even the adults enjoy watching the antics of these critters and the lessons are told not preached to them.

This is a wonderful show for all ages. I wish it was easier and more affordable to find dvds as it is not on our cable any longer.
