My review of "The Wheels on the Bus: Mango's Big Dog Parade" is now available on my reviews blog. Here's an excerpt:
"I promised myself that the reviews I write would be as honest as possible. With that in mind I have to say that I'm not crazy about "The Wheels on the Bus: Mango's Big Dog Parade" DVD. But, in keeping with the honesty policy, I must also admit that I'm not crazy about most of the programming aimed at my daughter's preschool demographic. I'm no fan of the Doodlebops, the Wiggles, Dora or even Diego (charming as he may be what with all that animal saving he does). This, of course, bothers my daughter not one little bit. She loves all of those shows and she really, really loves "The Wheels on the Bus: Mango's Big Dog Parade." Once it arrived from the Parent Bloggers it became regular and frequent viewing fare at our house and I couldn't get her to watch much else. And really, why should I mind? The songs are catchy, the lessons taught in the DVD are good and appropriate ones for her age (taking turns and getting along) and she loves singing and dancing along with the kids in the video."
