Little Laureate's For the Love of Art [Import]
** GOLD AWARD WINNER, 2003 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA).**
The world's greatest classical music and fine art from the Masters converge on this one-of-a-kind educational video. Paintings come alive in time to music by Mozart and Beethoven, allowing children to experience the shapes, colors and patterns of the art and the rhythms, textures and patterns in the music.
Thoughtful connections are made between art and the real world. Live fish become Matisse's painting. Children draw a circle that morphs into a Kandinsky piece.
With its trademark combination of stunning visual effects, a world-class soundtrack, and revolutionary parent-friendly format, For the Love of Art welcomes viewers of any age to a celebration of the humanities.
DVD Extras include: Scene selction, Soundtrack play, Art only play and Animation only play.

The only downside is the lack of additional features. You pretty much get the main feature or a version with just art or just animation. There is also a music section, but it simply shows the title while playing and is not very stimulating. Baby Einstein's earlier productions have "flash cards" so you can practice vocabulary and reading with baby, and I wish Baby Laureate had something similar. Still, this DVD is one of my very favorites to watch with my shorty, along with the other Baby Lareaute title, Love of World Travel. We highly recommend it.
It is a video meant to be watched *with* your children. We talk about what we see on the screen, what's coming next, colors, shapes, animals... I suppose if you use your VCR as a babysitter and just plop kids in front of it hoping they'll be mesmerized, you should pick a mindless, noisy alternative. But if you want to expose your children to gorgeous works of art with color, texture, pattern and a rich pallete of music, educate and inspire them, this is a wonderful teaching tool. The best I've found in this medium in fact.

Riveting for my kids and the most peaceful DVD for mom. This was my hands-down favorite when my kids were babies and could soothe my son's cry in an instant. Read morePublished on Aug. 2 2006 by Anonymous Mom
Simply wonderful and different. A creative approach to learining. It "shows" the viewer how to look at art. Kid friendly but not simpering.
We love it. Read more

not sure why, but this movie just did not hold my child's attention. he enjoys baby mozart etc., baby songs, and usually sits still, enthralled by a movie when i put one on. Read morePublished on Jan. 27 2004 by cgh
