A welcome addition to public and especially grade school libraries, and the perfect gift for any child with a blossoming interest in science. --James Cox, Midwest Book Review Child Bookwatch DVD Shelf
If you have a pre-teen child who is studying Earth Science in school you will positively be amazed at how helpful, reinforcing and supportive this DVD is. The same topics that they are spending their days learning in school: astronomy, geology, mineralogy, weather, soil erosion, etc. are all here with visually appealing, colorful animations. What made it more fun than school was a certain sense of fun that Rock 'N Learn sprinkles liberally throughout the DVD. Whether it is the fun characters or some silly banter it clearly worked. The use of rhyme and rhythm to memorize planet names and other scientific facts was not only viewed by parents as ingenious but exceptionally effective as well. --Review from The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval
This product is kid appealing and keeps children interested. The DVD is exceptionally well planned and is amazingly informative without the children losing interest. The DVD was so interesting, not only to the children, but to the parents as well. It was fun to sit and get involved with the DVD and test our knowledge of what we knew now and what we never knew before. It was helpful and easy to understand for children of all ages. --Reviewer from iParenting Media Awards Best Products

The characters are funny and add songs to aid in understanding. They have Italian and New York accents (my background) so I can introduce my California kids to East Coast style.
After this review, I'm writing the company to request a similar program for 4th/5th Life Science. It must have been designed by middle school science teachers, because it hits the mark perfectly.
Pros : Most of things are explained with clear 3d models and animation like days and night, and rocks science which are easier to grasp if you see things in action. It covers a lot of important topics. It keeps the study material interesting for kids by adding some songs and story line.
Cons : Fast paced for kids ; kids dont learn so many topics in such a short time ( but you can always pause and learn the rest of topics next time if you own the dvd). At times the models are missing and things are explained through conversation.
Overall a great product and a must buy. worth every penny.
The earth science video is informative and is presented in a way that he retains the information. The earth character has an accent that I find to be annoying, but my son doesn't seem to mind.
