KidVid: Five New and Almost-New Titles from Lionsgate - Page 3
Angelina Ballerina experiences and shares a variety of musical genres with her fans in Angelina Ballerina: Musical Moves (on DVD, digital download, and on-demand). Although we most associate ballet with classical music, Angelina Ballerina: Musical Moves introduces disco and jazz, while Ms. Mimi explores modern dance with her students. Kids aged two through seven will benefit from the DVD’s messages about friendship and social skills while celebrating dance and, yes, another birthday.
As a fan of what was once called “wholesome” entertainment for children, I recommend the gentle lessons all five of these home videos offer. Entertaining without overwhelming is an admirable feat, and this collection of happy, helpful heroes has mastered the task. Home video has never been an appropriate substitute for social interaction, however Angelina, Barney, Bob, et al, drive home ideas that support and encourage positive relationships, providing constructive examples that both amuse and instruct.
