Dr. Seuss's Holidays on the Loose DVD has three of my favorite holiday Dr. Seuss programs. Of course, what holiday Dr. Seuss DVD would be complete without How the Grinch Stole Christmas? I can't believe that there is anyone out there that hasn't seen this but just in case, this is based on Dr. Seuss's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It's the story of the Grinch who tries to steal a town's holiday spirit by stealing their holiday treats. He doesn't understand that Christmas is not about what you have/get and he learns that Christmas means a lot more than that. This is perfect to share with kids who are just a bit too materialistic on Christmas.
Also included is The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat which may not be as well known to some people. This is originally from 1982 when it won an Emmy Award! The Grinch decides to wreak havoc on the world but the Cat in the Hat stops him by using caring and compassion. Great moral lesson on dealing with adversity.
The last Dr. Suess program included is Halloween is Grinch night which is all about the Grinch trying to declare Halloween *Grinch Night*. The Whos are caught in a horrible storm and the Grinch decides to terrorize everyone in the town. A young boy has enough courage to stand up to him and stop him from destroying the town. Another great opportunity to discuss character with your child.
This has definitely become one of my favorite holiday movies. It's entertaining but teaches a valuable lesson at the same time.
