Top Customer Reviews
Sing and Learn with us includes new characters; Al, Og, Meg, Izzy and Gus. These toe-tapping characters perform 12 animated sing-along shorts focusing on developmental reading skills; such as, short vowels, phonics skills (word building) and comprehension - skills perfect for the preschool to first grade crowd. Great for those kiddos that have some knowledge of the sounds letters make and who are ready to start building CVC words. The music included is fun and catchy, and it's easy for kids to follow along on the screen with the words being highlighted as you go. It is nice to always see all the words on the bottom of the screen. A beginning reader can follow along and read while watching. My Pre-K child enjoyed the DVD very much. It is 30 minutes and it seems to cover enough material without overwhelming the child with too much details.
The DVD also doubles as a DVD-ROM, where if you put the DVD into your computer drive, you'll be able to access 12 printable sing-along storybooks and 3 printable coloring sheets too! The activities are a perfect way to continue learning and having fun!!!
To avoid some of the disappointment others feel, realize this is not a Tad, Lilly and the gang show. This is also NOT a story DVD. This is a sing along DVD. That's it. It has books you learn to read and sing alongs that go with it. We started my son on this after knowing the letters and while learning the sounds they make. He was 4. He is almost 6 and he still loves it (the way we all love nostalgic things from our past).
From an adult perspective, I have seen the progress of my niece with the way she expresses herself and of course the basic education she is gaining.
As a parent myself, I recommend that you spend time with your child while viewing these programs. Whilst they are pitched for the child to view alone I always believe in parents being part of the learning process.
If you are considering this purchase, take a look at it first and determine if your child is ready for it. We purchased over 8 of the Leapfrog learning DVDs and no regrets thus far.
I love this product and I am glad i purchased this even reading some of those negative reviews.
