(DVD / G / 2018 / PBS Kids)
Overview: From forming a schoolyard marching band to helping Ludwig van Beethoven write a symphony, your friends at PBS KIDS really know how to put on a fantastic performance!
DVD Verdict: Featuring over 4 hours of fun, these delightful '20 Music Tales' are brought together from some of your very favorite PBS Kids TV shows - Caillou, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train, Nature Train, Odd Squad, Peg + Cat, Reading Rainbow, Wild Kratts, and Wordworld.
This DVD contains all the shows my 3 1/2 year old son looks forward to everyday. Now all together in one place, and featuring the best Get Up and Dance clips from each TV show, his favorite is Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.
This endearing show, which was inspired by the award-winning Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, gives this iconic kids' series a parental two thumbs up every time, and for good reason. For kid who are brand new to the Mister Rogers characters will take an immediate shine to this modern animated generation, believe me.
But there are so many more great TV shows on here too, of course. WordWorld is a an entertaining, educational PBS preschool series, along with Peg + Cat, which is a super cute preschool series. Incorporating foundational math skills in a creative and exciting way, the characters count, sort, and group their way to solutions to everyday problems. And, due to its inclusion here on this great new DVD, the stories often illustrate concepts like superlatives, ordinal numbers, rhyming, and musical rhythm as well.
But, in truth, each and every TV show here on PBS Kids is worth its weight in visual gold, for there is not one foot out of place here re: title inclusion, as they all gel together very nicely. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
