This DVD contains the episodes Hello Doggie, Home Tweet Home, The Dirt on Dirt, and Don't Forget the Leaves,
When Sid hears dogs barking in his neighborhood, he wonders if they're talking to him. At school, Sid discovers that animals do communicate in lost of different ways, by using body language, making sounds, and barking! Woof! It's the latest question in a long list of questions that Sid finds himself wondering about. For example, what makes dirt so dirty? Why do bees live in hives and ants live in anthills? Do leaves actually do anything? Come explore backyard science with Sid in these super duper episodes that feature bugs, nature, animals and more. This DVD is close to two hours long ( 115 min).
If you hurry (for a limited time) you will get an additional DVD called Front Row Fun which contains another episode of Sid ( Why do we need Charts), as well as episodes of WordWorld, Dive Olly Dive!, Hurray for Huckle!, Tiny Planets, Will and Dewitt, Animal Atlas, Hermia and Friends, Pocoyo and Hopla. This DVD runs over two hours (134 minutes) and makes for a total of 4 hours of content for a really decent price.
The only problem with the extra DVD is that if you buy the companion collection of Sid the Science Kid (Things Change), the extra Front Row DVD has exactly the same content. In other words all the extra Front Row DVDs in the Sid collections have the same content.Read more ›

I go on the website and print activities. Often they have coloring pages and online games. A great resource and way to teach my little guy science in a fun way.
Toddlers and preschoolers love nature. They are too young to be jaded and will soak up pretty much any factual material that is simply presented. According to this show, children won't be interested in nature unless it's accompanied by: - small-child characters shaking their hips, street-rhyming and playing air guitar (this section goes on endlessly and is repeated in each show); - Sid pulling out a gigantic, media-style microphone, leaning in sideways and popping the mike into his friends' faces when asking them a question; - the kids yukking it up with Laugh-In style jokes that might graze the show's theme at best; - the teacher belting out a number. Possibly the Mickey Mouse Club was the creators' inspiration. The entertainment-TV inspired parts of the shows take up a lot of time and are not as interesting as the science parts, and unfortunately also seem to be saying (to the small child watching) that it's just as important to behave like you're on TV as it is to be interested in science.
The show has some undeniable good points -- the family is amusing (if somewhat idealized) and has great values, there is a good attitude about learning, the scientific topics are well chosen even if very lightly presented, there is a positive presentation of school routine, and small kids like the jokes.
ps -- The computer-animated Claymation gives the kids mouths without upper lips that are kind of creepy-looking in motion. This might bother the very young viewer.
