Review:
The Wheels on the Bus Mango's Dog Parade is a DVD designed to teach children about taking turns and getting along but it does much more than this. The video teaches new vocabulary, social skills, healthy eating, and exposes children to a variety of environments (i.e. parades and entomology). Both entertaining and educational, songs and a storyline target teaching social skills, specifically taking turns and getting along, and healthy eating habits. The DVD also introduces new vocabulary (entomologist and procrastinate) as well as labeling items that may be unfamiliar to children (such as beetles and other bugs).

Note: On each of the DVDs reviewed by our awards committees, there was a technical problem about the half way through the bonus Doggie Movie: the words and the video no longer were in sync.
