Review:
A generation of kids learned about science, grammar, money, math and history watching this 1972 series of educational hits. Catchy songs - 46 on the first disc alone - explain the function of a conjunction or how a bill makes its way through Congress. This special 30th anniversary edition DVD offers a new song - "I'm Going to Send Your Vote To College" about the Electoral College -- no doubt inspired by the presidential elections of 2000. Well worth the price, School House Rock! explains just about anything kids don't know - quickly and easily, with a zippy jingle. Added bonus: adults listening in will get a great refresher course.
