Nick Jr. television's Little Bill delivers all that viewers have come to expect from a Bill Cosby production: engaging story lines, intact family values, familiar predicaments, and the delicate balance of wit and wisdom. Whether he's at home or school, Little Bill's world is predictable, safe, and secure, and preschoolers will be drawn into it, lingering long enough to gain some valuable coping skills for their own world.

What I Did at School contains four 12-minute episodes exploring the everyday issues of the classroom, such as the thrill of being snack helper and resolving the dilemma of which friend gets the first snack; or the satisfaction of earning a gold star sticker for exemplary behavior. In one episode, Little Bill's best friend calls him a copycat when he chooses the same fire engine to ride. Not sure what this means (but fairly certain it is not a compliment), Little Bill seeks out the advice of his great-grandmother to sort things out. In another story, picture day presents the problem of what to wear for the class photo. His older brother, Bobby, gets to select his own clothes, so why can't Little Bill wear his favorite summer shorts in the middle of winter? And kids will identify with stage fright that haunts Little Bill during his first-ever school play. A lead part with all those parents watching--thankfully, Miss Murray teaches him a trick for blowing the jitters away. This gap-toothed 5-year-old is no saint, but his earnest enthusiasm and sunny disposition will endear him to young audiences. Kudos, too, for a program that portrays parents and teachers as wise and loving authority figures, worthy of respect. (Ages 2 to 6 years old) --Lynn Gibson

My 3 year old son loves little bill and I truly appreciate the gentle tone of the video including the instrumental jazz music. Little Bill proves that kids TV does not have to be spastic and constantly loud and over the top. I think my son loves Little Bill mostly because he behaves like a real little boy. He is scared of things, happy about things and is human. Not a character made up by a board room (apparently he is based on Bill Cosby as a boy).
In any case, all the videos are excellent but the school one focuses on issues that come up at pre school. A great adjustment if your child in entering school!

We love the Little Bill video. My son is 3 and he can watch the video over and over without getting tired of the story line. The story lines are simplistic yet are relevant to preschoolers. I agree with another writer that Little Bill's character is five, but he appeals more to preschoolers. I highly recommend the Little Bill series.

Wonderful piece for pre-schoolers and kids with autism. Teaches social skills and friendship skills with clear language. Whenever my son gets frightened, he now does what little Bill did to get rid of stage fright.

This video came out just in time for school. My son started pre-school and this video made him excited about starting school.
