Works like a charm!
on 16 May 2011
My son is 2 and a half and he just loves Spot from the very first moment I showed it to him. It was recommended by an English teatcher and I pity a bit I didn't buy it sooner! Episodes are short (5 mins) and topical with a lot of language that is simple for children yet not dumbed down. For instance in Spot on the farm he (Spot) and his father are searching for baby animals. They check a few places and we learn that a cow has a calf (or has not in the story :-)), baby sheep is called lamb, etc. It's just very natural and lovely and there still is a nice - yet simple - story. I bought also Spot's Bumper Collection - and there are many episodes on both this tripple set and that DVD - namely Lost Bone, Windy Day, Finds a Key, Follows His Nose, Spot's Umbrela, Goes Splash!, Goes to the Fair, In the Garden and First Walk. Even so both this and Bumper Collection was a worthy buy.
If you have little children they will love this show for sure. Also highly recommended if you bring them up with English as a second language. As Spot would say: Goodie! :-)
