Product Description

Amazon.ca

When Baby Bear must learn his alphabet in one day, Big Bird patiently takes him under his wing in Do the Alphabet. Only "The Method," (a hilarious combination of dance, song, visualization, and group therapy) can help Baby Bear on such short notice. The result is 40 minutes of ABC's Sesame Street style, where vibrant educational cartoons, enthusiastic kids, famous guest stars (here, Billy Joel), and harmonizing Muppets make lasting educational impressions. Children age 2 to 6 will enjoy the upbeat musical numbers dedicated to various letters; a favorite segment features the Boogie Woogie Piggies and their flashy rendition of the alphabet song. Throughout the well-paced show, Big Bird offers just the right blend of coaching and friendship, much like the ace support group leader he's mildly spoofing. Hats off to Sesame Street for helping Baby Bear--and his viewing audience--understand that learning takes time, patience, and a team effort. --Liane Thomas

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy Richard Scarry ABC instead June 24 2004
Format:DVD
The problems with this DVD are that it doesn't effectively teach the alphabet and it is pretty annoying. A fair chunk of it is Baby Bear complaining with a whiny lisp, and Big Bird patronising him. Big Bird even runs an "alphabet support group" (like psychotherapy) which I think is a really unsuitable concept for young children. But worse than that, the letters are not taught in a systematic, complete way - only selected letters are featured prominently.
For an alphabet DVD I would recommend Richard Scarry ABC or Learning Songs instead of this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best May 17 2004
By Jen ML
Format:DVD
I had bought "Learning About Letters" when my oldest son was about 2, which is excellent and will be out on DVD soon. This DVD is not nearly as good - not as much to help learn. The storyline is weak, and there is nbot much emphasis on the letters themselves. Most of it is about Baby Bear's frustration in trying to say the alphabet. My 2 younger boys (4 and 2) have not been very interested in this one.
Get "Learning About Letters" instead, which does the entire alphabet several times and highlights letters instead of Baby Bear trying to say the alphabet.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT AND EDUCATIONAL April 16 2004
Format:DVD
My son loves this DVD. It was one of his first Sesame Street DVD's and is still one of his favorites. It is very educational in learning the alphabet. The only thing that I didn't like was the way Baby Bear pronounces his words (although my son doesn't mind one bit). Other than that I would defenitely recommed this to your library for your young ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for learning the alphabet! April 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I started my son watching this video when he was about 18 mos old. I would put it on when I was making dinner to keep him occupied and out of the kitchen. It helped him learn the alphabet. He loved it and will still watch it even now at age 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves it! March 29 2004
Format:DVD
We all love Sesame Street, but I highly recommend this dvd. You know how the kids mostly like the singing part of the video, well on this dvd you can chose just to play the songs and eliminate the talking. My daughter doesn't move for at least 30 minutes. She also loves 25th Sesame Street Celebration, and Count with me 123.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not great Feb. 18 2004
Format:DVD
After reading some of the other reviews before I bought this for my twin 2 year olds I was very excited. After watching it I have to say I'm disappointed. The songs are great, but I don't think the overall storyline is great or easy for young children to follow.I think they go through too fast, emphasizing some letters and just blowing through all the others.
If I could go back I wouldn't have bought this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show Feb. 10 2004
Format:DVD
Unfortunately finding Sesame Street on t.v. has become imposssible in my area. Luckily there are plenty of videos/dvd's available. This one is my son's favorite video, and even after MULTIPLE viewings, I enjoy it too. He's too young to know how much is sinking in, but he smiles everytime we show him the box, and it never fails to hold his attention all the way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend This Video Jan. 31 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
My husband and I were looking for a way to teach our 2.5 year old son his ABCs. He wasn't interested in working with us, but does like movies. We read the reviews on this and decided to give it a try. It has been fantastic!!!! Not only is he saying his ABCs and is now interested in them, but he loves to sing and dance to the DVD as well. It's also great for our 11 month old daughter. She laughs, claps her hands, and thoroughly enjoys it. Great entertainment for both kids, and we don't mind it either. It's a winner.
