Mother Goose Club Review

Mother Goose Club is a series of 1-minute educational programs for preschoolers promoting early literacy. The live-action series features six colorful characters from the Mother Goose world: Teddy Bear, Jack B. Nimble, Little Bo Peep, Baa Baa Sheep, Mary Quite Contrary, and Eep Mouse, who invite viewers to sing and dance along to favorite nursery rhymes.
Early childhood research has shown that familiarity with nursery rhymes helps young children learn to read. When preschoolers read, recite, sing or clap along to rhymes, they develop a feel for the sounds and structures of language, the first step in becoming successful readers. Mother Goose rhymes also introduce children to characters, drama, simple story structure and a host of new vocabulary words, all building blocks for early literacy. Perhaps most importantly, children are delighted by the singing, clapping, and finger play in nursery rhymes, and learn to associate words and verse with joy, laying the foundation for a lasting enthusiasm for reading.

I have to say how cute the characters in the Mother Goose Club videos are...
I have toddlers in my home everyday, my 2 kids are 2 years, and 4 years old, plus I watch a 2 year old everyday, and I look for quality things to show the children once in a while. Something to listen to or watch while I make lunch is helpful.  I love to make sure they are watching educational things, but We have tons of fun with Cd's. I can plug in a CD and we have fun for hours signing along, dancing and playing along.
