Dove Review

In this film your child will learn to use his/her imagination. The film contains upbeat music, fun adventures and a soothing narrative voice which is very calming for your child. There are several episodes on this DVD to choose from and they are all family friendly and great for your children to learn from. Some of the things your child will learn about are sharing, why and where it rains, musical instruments and about the death of a goldfish.

The producers of “Harold and the Purple Crayon “did a wonderful job of following the story books and keeping the films interesting. The narrator they picked does a wonderful job as her voice is very nice to listen to and will calm your child down as her voice is very peaceful. So sit back and enjoy the wonderful adventures of Harold and his Purple Crayon.
