Because we live in Turkey we don't get to watch these shows. It is a great starter DVD. After my son watched it I was able to order the shows he most prefered. We now have a whole collection of Thomas, Pingu, Fireman Sam and Barney thanks to this set.
This is such a great book. After my 5 year old checked it out from his school library he didn't want to return it so we had to track down and buy our own copy! The pictures are as good as the story. It is a great exercize in counting. We almost memorised it all.
