I watched it with them and did not appreciate some of the ideas that the video was passing on. Value #1 I didn't agree with is being scared of the dark and monsters in the dark. To make the a sound, the video was having the characters scream when a light was turned off. I am fortunate that my kids are not afraid of the dark, never have been, and I am reluctant to show them something that indicates that they should be afraid of the dark. #2 for the i sound, it emphasized the word "ick' and said ick is the what you say when you don't like dinner. Again, we don't use this kind of language around dinner. #3 One of the characters took away another's toys, then the first character got mad and took them all back. I prefer to emphasize sharing and asking, rather than taking.
I didn't make it through all 12 segments, so cannot give a complete overview of all of it. After 5 segments, me and the kids had had enough.
The pack contains a DVD with 12 music video clips and 12 corresponding booklets. The idea is that the child picks up the songs and words and after s/he gets used to the tunes etc tries to read the booklets without the music DVD.
The stories are well planned and unfold in a specific order that progressively builds knowledge (e.g. short o, i, function of a, e, i etc.). The story content is clear and uncomplicated, with nice, big and crisp bold Arial subtitles for the song texts; the animated characters and graphics are funky, colorful and interesting but not too technicolor and visually 'loud'; the music is upbeat, in various music styles (ranging from rock to jazzy blues) and encourages singing, but it is not overwhelming and enables the child to focus on the written and spoken words.
Absolutely recommended. Will not regret!
My 3 year old and my 1 year old are never afraid of the dark and can play hide and seek with us and they can hide in a dark bedroom. After watching this video, my daughter is trying to copy the character and tells me that she is afraid when it is dark. I stopped showing this video to her right away. She can now play hide and seek with us again.
Get another videos for reading and phonics.
For some of the Leap Frog products I have seen people complain about the graphics. Come on, these things are geard toward little children who could care less about graphics. One person made a comment about another Leap Frog product that beyond a 19 inch TV the graphics are all over the place. Duh, put it on a smaller TV. Why do you have your kid sittiing infront of a really large high tech tv anyway? You will never get them away from it. It's like going from a Benz to a Sentra. Put yourself in a Benz, you may never want to drive your Sentra again.
I would recogmend this program to anyone as part of your program but not the one and only thing to have. I haven't seen anything out there that meets all needs for all children. I don't feel even Hooked on Phonics could be your stand alone program.
I am speaking from a homeschooler's point of view and from a professional teacher as well.
