This DVD is perfect for a child learning to recognize letters. The ABC Monsters are just letters that can move, talk, etc. They are not scary. The episodes include a story where one of the letter monsters is missing. The human characters have to find the missing letter monster. They turn to their ABC book and have to find answers to a few clues (all the answers begin with the missing letter) to find the letter monster. Then the overall story can be finished and then there is the Brainy Gang where they review the letter and words that began with it. This DVD features A, B, C, and D. It is cute and a fun way to introduce the letters. Hazel is a bit old for it though and got a bit bored.

The second DVD is Houdini. This is a story of how Ehrich Weiss became Harry Houdini with the help of the magician Tesla and his niece, Beth. Looking up Harry Houdini on-line I do not see this as a historically accurate it however serves as a fun introduction to Harry Houdini and magic. (Source) Hazel has been making up "magic" tricks ever since watching it and performing them for us. We are also going to check out Harry Houdini with some library books at our next visit. This movie is for slightly older kids as there are a few areas where kids could be frightened but not many. We really enjoyed this one.


Now it is time for the giveaway!! NCircle Entertainment will send the winner of this giveaway a copy of each of the DVDs reviewed here. Winners must be from the United States or Canada and must follow my Giveaway Rules. Please follow the Rafflecopter and good luck!! The giveaway ends at midnight on October 28th!
