1. Spot's Alphabet:
- A for Acrobat, B for Ball, C for Car, D for Dolphin, E for Elephant, F for Flamingo, G for Giraffe, H for Helicopter, I for Insect, J for Juggler, K for Kangaroo, L for Lion, M for Mummy, N for Nuts, O for Oranges, P for Peaches, Q for Quartet, R for Reindeer, S for Snake, T for Tiger, U for Uniform, V for Violin, W for Wigwam, X for Xylophone, Y for Yak, and Z for Zoo.
- The vocabulary used to represent the letters of the alphabet are not really good examples. Some of the vocabulary is not frequently used, therefore difficult to memorize for small children, ie. quartet, wigwam and xylophone. Not to mention that xylophone begins with a "z" sound and not an "x" sound.
- The order of the letters when being first introduced to the watcher can also be in disorder, for example, it introduces P, R, S then Q, instead of PQRS, or Y then X instead of XY.
- I am mainly disappointed in the fact that there are no phonetic sounds to each letter. When the alphabet is being introduced to a beginnner, the letters need to be taught along with their phonetic sounds, otherwise there is no point in teaching the alphabet at all.
- The male voiced narrator lacks repetition of the alphabet letters when first introducing them to the watcher.
- There is more emphasis on the narration of the story than the introduction to alphabet letters. Also, sentences used in the narration are a bit too long and fast to grasp for beginners of English listening.
- The story itself is not very good, but the musical part of the alphabet is creative.Read more ›
Any child who has enjoyed Spot on DVD with Jane Horrocks will be disappointed with this, and any parent who was hoping to introduce their child to the alphabet would be better off buying 'Maisy's ABC' on DVD.
