Five of Eric Carle's most popular stories bring the wonders of the world around young children into focus. Gentle, colorful music not only enhances the beautiful jewel-like animation but delights the senses as well. Learn to count when THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR eats his way to a magical transformation. In PAPA, PLEASE GET THE MOON FOR ME, a little girl is fascinated by the changing face of the moon. Learning to speak doesn't come easily for THE VERY QUIET CRICKET. Will he ever learn? When THE MIXED-UP CHAMELEON visits a zoo, the experience teaches him the meaning of being yourself. Imagination is the magic carpet to a rainbow world of music in I SEE A SONG. But can you really see a song?

The video is a half an hour long and includes the following stories:
1. The Very Hungry Caterpillar
2. Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me
3. The Very Quiet Cricket
4. The Mixed-Up Chameleon
5. I See A Song
It also includes a bonus feature called "Game Time." This feature allows your child to play an educational game called "Eating Through the Week" with the use of the remote. My daughter loves this game. I wish it had more games for her to play.
The illustrations in this video match the illustrations in the book. The narrator's voice is pleasant as well. The animation is great (it's by Disney) and everything is true to the books. This is a great DVD for children 5 and under who like Eric Carle and his stories.
The stories themselves with the animation and sound effects (same on both versions) are excellent and maybe the best I've ever seen. Certainly can recommend this or the other version to your fickle children.
I have a babysitting service in the Napa Valley, and have worn my first DVD out, so I'm buying another one. Ages 2 - 9 love it! Yes, even a 9 year old will pretend they don't want to watch it with their little sister, but end up being mesmerized and comforted by all the sweet stories and great animation used. All of the stories have peaceful orchestral music in the background, and the readers tell the stories nicely. "Papa, please get the moon for me" is enthralling to a 3 or 4 year old, who sees "papa" getting the moon with his mile-high ladder for his daughter to dance and play with.
Since my jobs are typically on call, and I've just met these children, these DVD's are invaluable at bedtime, and I find that most end up falling asleep to them.
