Nickelodeon: The First Day of School comes to DVD TODAY!

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, July 13, 2010

As Kaelyn gets older, she gets more and more excited for the day she will start school. Although she is only 2 1/2 years old, almost every day she asks me when she will be old enough to go to school. I love that she's excited and know she will transition very well once that day comes. With as much as she talks about going to school, I knew the new The First Day of School DVD would be a big hit!

I was excited to have had the chance to review the DVD. The moment Kaelyn caught a glimpse of it when it arrived she was begging to watch it. I have a feeling Dora on the front cover is what really intrigued her.

I had a feeling she'd love it, and I was right. It's a DVD she asks to watch almost every single day. I enjoy watching it with her as well. It's very cute and adventure filled. Dora the Explorer lead the way and it also includes episodes from Go, Diego, Go!, Blue's Clues; The wonder Pets!; and Ni Hao, Kai-lan! I love that it's educational and holds her attention the entire time.

From the Press Release:

Nickelodeon: First Day of School Synopses:

Dora the Explorer – First Day of School

Boots and Tico are really excited because it’s their first day of school and they’re going to learn in English and Spanish! Dora leads the way, teaching Boots Spanish and Tico English as they head out to school. At the river, their Guatemalan friend Camila shows them how to find turtles to ride across, then they go through the Forest where Swiper swipes Tico and Boots’ lunches and they have to find them.

Go, Diego, Go! –“ Linda the Librarian”

Alicia is opening a new library on the mountain top. Linda the Llama was supposed to bring the books for the library -- but she's late and it's almost time to open the library. Diego finds Linda the Llama and they set off for the library. But first they’ve got to go up and down the rocky mountains by saying "arriba/abajo," then a big wind blows away the library books and it's up to the viewer to find them.

Blue's Clues – “Blue Takes You To School”

It's Periwinkle's first day at preschool, and everyone needs to help Periwinkle make it through his first day. From finding his cubby and getting through circle time, to reading the job chart and understanding how to take turns and respect others, Periwinkle has a lot to learn.
