SRP: DVD, $12.99

In Emilee’s opinion:

Splash and Bubbles: The Kelp Forest and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Won’t you be our neighbor were the perfect addition to our lazy summers. We were able to explore The Kelp Forest and learn about ocean habitats. We loved watching the yellowback fusilier fish named Splash and the dragonet named Bubbles. I also loved that there were deep meanings behind each story. Fun characters, fun music and fun adventures.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is always a favorite of ours because we learn so much and the characters are always so calm. We recently moved so this was fun to see the Tiger Family welcome their new neighbors with open arms. It was fun to try and figure out how many kids they had. Daniel is a great example of a true friend. He helped Jodi Platypus feel welcome in the neighborhood as well as in school. I thought it was only the movie but there were five stories included. Overall, I was quite impressed with the lessons I learned about parenthood and the community. We all need to be a little kinder each and every day.
