Review:
As Belinda Takahashi and her team continue to present high quality musical performances and original compositions, this DVD follows the puppet Juno and her friends through a series of musical adventures all designed to introduce young children to rhythm through walking, running, clapping and singing. With songs to sing, rhythms to clap and chances for kids to have fun making goofy sounds, this inventive and intelligent introduction to the world of rhythm is certain to get feet tapping. Interspersed with the puppet scenes are animations featuring works by Mozart, Debussy and Schubert and interludes by a bongo drummer and an African drummer. As Juno instructs, rhythm is all around us. “I'm telling you you don't need a drum, an empty box can be just as fun...you can hum or whistle a note—or pull the zipper up on a coat.”

Young viewers will easily and happily learn that by just looking around and using some creativity, rhythm is indeed everywhere. But you may want to put the good china just out of reach.
