The video is done very well. Much better than a standard book that just shows static images with a voice-over text. There is some animated movement and all the comic asides are presented. My daughter and I have read this book so many times that we were able to quote along with the movie the first time we saw it.
The other videos on the disc are OK. The real winner here is Arnie the Doughnut.

My children love Arnie the confused doughnut. Arnie is a doughnut who goes through a journey of self discovery and later survives being eaten by becoming a dog. Arnie is both silly and lovable. Great cartoon short.

This video, which brings to life the book of the same name, is so funny and original. Adults will love it nearly as much as the kids do. I have never even watched the other stories on the DVD (sorry, authors), but Arnie alone makes it totally worthwhile. This animated picture book is targeted toward kids aged 4-8, but will appeal to a wider audience. Don't hesitate to buy this one (assuming the price is not inflated).

This video is a perfect compliment to the book. I read the book to my 4th grade students, then we act out the reader's theater (in doughnut costumes we design and make), and we put on a show for parents. Then as a culminating activity, we eat doughnuts and watch this video. It is perfect! My students even enjoyed the 3 other short videos on the DVD.

My grandchildren loved Arnie, they had me make an arnie the doughnut stuffy with the sprinkles to look just like Arnie. When I mailed it to my grandson he said he loved it. we read the story so many times while I was visiting them. The movie is just like the book. We have enjoyed it.

My son first saw "Arnie The Doughnut" in school. He enjoyed it so much he bugged us for weeks to get the DVD. We're glad we did. Good message for children.

I purchased this video for my Grandson who saw it at Kaleidoscope in Kansas City. He fell in love with it. Great story and the donuts talks!
