This dvd includes 4 animated stories (some more animated than others): "Bark, George"; "Dot the Fire Dog"; "No Roses for Harry" and "Whistle for Willie". It also has 2 live-action short videos: "A Boy, a Dog and a Frog" and "Angus Lost".
The narrators voices for the animated stories are nice. There's really no words spoken in both the live-action videos. My daughter got a real kick out of George and what he has to say at the end of the story. I really liked the section at the end of "Dot the Fire Dog" where there are fire safety tips. I thought that was really great for my daughter to start learning.
I think my personal *least* favorite of the stories is "A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog" simply because I'm a mom and I'm pretty protective of my kids. I kept thinking, "why is this little kid by a pond all by himself? He looks like he's 5 years old. He could drown!". And then, when he comes home he's in the bathtub with the dog and even my daughter asked why he was taking a bath all by himself without his mom there. I know, I know....it's just a story. But still, I had to tell her that she can only have a bath when I'm there and she can't go running off somewhere by herself. Other than that we like the dvd.
I had selected Play All and when it was all over it started playing again from the first story. My daughter liked it enough to want to watch it all over again. The dvd says it's for ages 3 - 9 (my 12 year old was in the room when "Bark, George" was on and he was interested in it enough to watch a little and even laughed) and it's 53 minutes long.
Ok bye bye
