My daughter does not like "scary" movies at all so I wasn't sure she would like this. However, this DVD is somehow able to teach kids to deal with scary things without being scary. I thought it was a bit slow, but my almost three year old girl is enjoying it and the price was right for under $8. She loves when we read Dr. Seuss books so maybe she is partial to the Cat in the Hat. The puppets and songs are not annoying at all and the stories are high quality.
