In Emilee’s opinion:

This DVD included five stories from the PBS kids series including Daniel Tigers Neighborhood, Arthur, Peg + Cat and Word World. Each included lessons for kids to learn all about allergies. My favorite was Daniel Tigers Neighborhood. Although the graphics weren’t my favorite and the music got stuck in my head, the message was perfect for kids. There were a lot of different songs that taught about allergies. The songs taught safety skills such as telling a grownup if the food bothered their tummies and asking an adult before eating something new. Overall, the entire DVD had a vareity of PBS kids tv shows which I loved. I definitely recommend this DVD to teach your kids about allergies.
