SPRING SCIENCE cover image
Kids loved the stories; found them interesting and fun to watch. They are also easy to understand. "A goose was being raised by woodchucks because her egg had rolled into their place. When she fell off a cliff and could fly, when realized she was a goose!" "The pictures are beautiful." All the children said they would watch this again.
Beautiful; visually very pleasing. These book-based stories are presented simply and true to the original story. We love the way action words are presented in "In A Small, Small Pond." "Goose" is a good tool for teaching about the Spring season and it would make a good comparison between it and Hans Christian Anderson's "Ugly Duckling." The whole collection instills a love of literature appreciation and increases learning through the activities included.
Includes three shorts: " In the Small, Small Pond" - Spring is here in this cheerful introduction to the seasons. Frogs leap, tadpoles wriggle, geese waddle and minnows scatter. Young kids won't want to miss a single splash. Narrated by Laura Dern, with music by Jerry Dale McFadden (6 min.); "Waiting for Wings" - Butterflies bloom as delicately as flowers in this visually magnificent story of beginnings, middles and ends: eggs, caterpillars and finally butterflies. Vocals and music by Crystal Taliefero and animation by Cha-Pow! (6 min.); "Goose" - A baby goose, adopted at birth by a family of woodchucks, feels like an outcast in everything she does until she discovers - all by herself - that she can fly. Narrated by Laura Dern, with music by John Jennings (7 min.)
