This puts the Wonder in wonderful and

Beauty in beautiful

not just for kids

its a pleasure to watch

I cant beleive how cheap it is

I bought two for me (and my wee ones)

and for my sisters kids

THEY THANK ME ALL THE TIME

Under £15 would be a bargain for the pleasure it gives

under £10 is amazing and under £5 is a give away

Still to meet another who doesn't like it

One of the best children dvds. Timeless and it never bores. Children at my school love it and ask for it again and again! I wish there were more dvds like this and maybe a sequel to animate more of eric carles books.

My 2 year old is entranced and wanted it on permanent repeat. Now he's 3, he's still asking for it. This is great, because as an adult, the animation is so nicely done that it makes it a pleasure to watch with him.

We have this already and it is my 2 year old daughters favourite bedtime watch. The artwork is totally true to Eric Carle and the animation brings the stories to life. I love the classic music. I am buying it for my friends' children now.

I got this for my 3 1/2 year old Grandson for Christmas and to be fair even after reading the reviews wasn't sure that it was for him but got to say he really loves it. I have read the Hungry Caterpillar book to him since he was just one year old so he was familiar with the title story anyway but he loves all these on the DVD. Even the one that is just illustrations. We giggled at that when I said ooops no story its just pictures he thought that was funny. Would recommend this DVD it is just so lovely for children to actually watch something you expect small children to enjoy as I do think we make them grow up too soon these days. Lovely DVD xxx

This is the second time I have purchased this dvd, once second-hand and once from amazon. Both dvds seem to wear pretty quickly and skip/stick on the main menu and loading.
Great stories. Very popular in my household, frequently requested. Really frustrating that the dvds seem to have been a poor production.

cannot thank you enough for this DVD. I genuinely believe it to have magical, sedative powers! I'm a nanny taking full time care of 14 month old twins. I have over 20 yrs experience as a nanny and over the past 9 months I have tried EVERYTHING to get them to nap at the same time....and everything failed. And then I bought them the Hungry Caterpillar. We've been reading them the story forever so they're very famillar with it but the DVD has some kind of sedative effect on them. I sit them in their cosy chairs, pop the DVD on...and volia: 2 sleeping babies!!! Instantly...it was weeks before they'd seen the end of the first story.
Thank you, thank you. I now get a break every day, I get to eat lunch, tidy toys, fold laundry.....everyone with small children needs this.
