The grandchildren loved these mini series all wrapped up in one DVD. This was the first time we heard of this cute series, but not the last time we will be watching it! After the DVD series was done, we quickly looked up on the TV for when the next episode was on and recorded the series. A very sweet series that your little ones will enjoy without realizing they are learning as well!
