This video told the story of Crockett in a easy way for young children (5-7) to understand. It was not realistic which is appropriate for that age. If it was too realistic it might be too scary and intense. Example: the talk to Davy as he packs to leave for the Alamo and discuss what will happen there but show no scenes. It is a bit hokey and a little on the simplistic side - again, appropriate for the younger children. It does skip through a lot of material with a little less explanation than I would have liked from the video "teacher". Also, I wasn't real thrilled with the misbehaving older children featured in the video story line but they reformed in the end. My son, who is not used to commercial tv, was surprised by the children's behavior (made him glad he homeschools! :-) but I watched it with him and we talked about this as well as helping bridge the different time periods in which the main character visits Davy.
