I want to say, I absolutely love Sesame Street. I always have. This video is very interesting. I have a 4 month old who loves TV and the colors. I usually set him up with something on Netflix, there is actually a good selection of baby style shows on there. I like to watch the things with the kids, especially when there are songs involved because my daughter has a speech disorder and we can sing together, but I have to know the words!
I really enjoyed this DVD. There are so many different things for each letter, and they used some hit songs through out the DVD as well. All in all, we loved it. Even though my older 2 know their ABC's the things that are shown for each letter also peak their curiosity when it is something they have never seen. They go through so many different items for each letter it really is a great learning tool, and there are even some words I forgot about that just aren't as common. It also gives us a chance to sing along and be silly with each other, and baby boy can watch us and laugh. I totally recommend this for anyone with kids.
