Review:
Riddle in a Bottle teaches children about waterways (oceans, rivers, ponds), aquatic wildlife, while trying to solve a riddle about what connects all life on earth. This is done through songs, humor and remarkable video of the ocean and wildlife. The script is well written and the skilled actors are well suited to one another. They present the information confidently, and with clever age appropriate humor.

Young viewers were captivated, asking questions about sea turtles and the ocean. The demonstration of how rain develops - the two actors dressed up like water drops and floated from the ocean to the clouds and then back down again - was pitch perfect. The day after viewing the DVD for the first time, our five-year- old explained the entire process to our three-year-old. The DVD includes educational activities, designed for children K-6.
