Review:
Talking animals are a big part of children's literature and videos. The puppet cast of It's a Big, Big World are slightly out of the ordinary, though, being neither barnyard types nor classic African jungle critters. These are rain forest animals, including a mellow sloth, a lively pair of twin marmosets, a nervous tree frog, and a good-hearted anteater. The setting and cast aside, what distinguishes this gentle series is the genuine science content (what causes thunder, why do we need water, etc.) that accompanies each episode's fairly typical life lesson (be yourself, help others, etc.). Animal habits, weather, nutrition, sound, and ecology are all touched on in the course of this DVD. The values here are timeless: respect yourself and others, care for the environment and the creatures we share it with. Original music complements the content introduced via the storyline.
