>“Let’s Grow: Lend A Helping Hand” DVD Review

>Being a part of Sprout's Band of Bloggers, they sent me a copy of “Let’s Grow: Lend A Helping Hand” DVD to review. Sprout is an awesome children's channel, so I was very excited to receive this DVD. The “Let’s Grow: Lend A Helping Hand” DVD features your favorite characters from Sprout in different scenarios in which they help.

The DVD features Sunnyside up hosts Kelly and Chicca along with short videos of Barney the Dinosaur, Bob the Builder, Thomas the Tank Engine, Angelina Ballerina, and Fireman Sam all trying to help others in some way. Kelly and Chicca encourage kids to help by giving them different ideas of ways to help others. At the end of each episode Kelly and Chicca award the character with a Good Egg Award for lending a helping hand.

As a parent, I thought that the DVD was absolutely adorable and the theme was great. Children should learn the importance of helping others at a young age. It is important for them to see how positive it is and how much of a difference they can make. I think that it is very important to teach them this at a very young age.

As a child, Samantha (2 yo) loved the DVD. She has asked to watch it again numerous times. She enjoys helping others. She will attempt to do dishes, and clean up. She will always ask "You need help?" Even though she is so young, I think she realizes that it is important to lend a helping hand.
