- Game time: Eating through the week
Top Customer Reviews
Most of the reviewers seem to have bought this for kids about 2 years old. My daughter is 4 and enjoys it. The back of the dvd says ages 5 and under.
My daughters favorite part is the bonus feature. It's a game called Eating Through the Week. There's all 7 days of the week and you have to help the caterpillar choose the food he will eat for that day. Each day has 3 choices and the child moves the arrows on the remote to move the caterpillar to the correct choice. Then they press the enter button. As an example, a pleasant voice says, "Today is Monday and on Monday the very hungry caterpillar needs to eat one apple. Can you help the very hungry caterpillar find one apple? Just move the highlight over the picture of one apple and press enter on your remote control. Great! You helped the very hungry caterpillar eat through one apple on Monday! But he's still hungry. Now it's Tuesday and.........", etc. It's actually a very cute game and the best part of the entire dvd, in my opinion. It's too bad that there isn't at least one more game to choose from. I wish there were games like that on the Scholastic videos, it would enhance them so much. This is the first time my daughter has played a game on a dvd and thinks it's the best.
So, just an fyi....if you are reading these reviews and decide you would like to purchase this, go with the dvd not the vhs. You can find the vhs for cheaper....but I would assume you'll miss out on the game. We got this dvd from the library.Read more ›
Absolutely well done, Disney! I wish there were more out there like this one!
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.

Granddaughter is mesmerized by the animated caterpillar story. Other stories are not so good, hanging on coattails of caterpillar.Published 1 month ago by Linda Fleur
