Pretty terrible Nov 26, 2006
This video is awful. Both my daughter and my reading classes have seen the LeapFrog videos several times. I was looking for another video for them that would be fun and educational at the same time. I thought I would try this. Bad idea! For one thing, it is boring. This lady with horrible fashion sense goes through the alphabet in order and says the names of the letters and the sounds they make, draws the letter, makes a word with the letter, and goes on to the next letter. There is an audience of very bored looking kids watching her but she doesn't interact with them. There is a person in a costume that reminds me of a french fry guy that the lady talks to sometimes and I think that is their attempt to make it fun but it's a pretty lame attempt. My daughter rarely gets to watch television and usually it's a big treat but she actually asked me to turn this off. For another thing, it's bad teaching!! They teach the letter sound and immediately put the letter into a word. For the letter "a", the kids are supposed to read "at" but they haven't taught the letter "t" yet! And it does not explicitly teach about blending at all. No child could learn to read that way. Save your money! If you don't already have the Leapfrog videos, get those instead; they are excellent.
