Review:
Forget the phonics, neglect the numbers, and take the spotlight off the Spanish lessons for an effervescent 30 minutes of fun this DVD delivers. The skillful playfulness of the Laurie Berkner Band (Laurie Berkner, Susie Lampert and Brian Mueller) serves up a lively collection of music videos. The simple sets and colorful costumes add to the upbeat and welcoming presentation that encourages viewers to participate in this too often passive medium.

"A Pig on My Head" is testament that silliness can shine without stupidity, and that giggling is one of the great pleasures of childhood. The bonus song, "I'm A Mess," is a charming chill pill for those who think getting messy is the end of the world.

Having a bad hair day at your house? Even the crankiest of children (and the "poutiest" of parents) can't resist the contagious good mood transmitted by this fresh and festive DVD.
