Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this DVD, which claims that it will "jumpstart your child's speech," combines repetition, simple songs and games, and a perky host in an effort to help babies and young toddlers acquire the basic steps to speech. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics as well as Common Sense Media suggest no screen time at all until the age of 2. While this DVD may not do harm, it offers nothing that couldn't be achieved simply by reading books together. This DVD also runs longer than the 60 minutes advertised on the packaging and Web site -- more like 75 minutes for both episodes.

Social Behavior

Good reinforcement of basic lessons for toddlers, like using your words to get what you want and remembering "please" and "thank you." Lewis models excellent positive reinforcement to her little charges, always encouraging and acknowledging their efforts.
