Little Laureate: A review and GIVEAWAY




Have you heard of the great DVD series for children? Well, it's not just for children...adults like them, too! I was very lucky to get to review one of the great DVD's. I chose the My World Adventures. Caleb, Madelyn and I loved the colorful pictures, music, and fun art activities. I loved the multi-culturism! The DVD had 5 different ways they taught "I love you." I really enjoyed all the art pictures put together in a creative way. Caleb liked when the kids came on the screen. I think Maddie liked the bright colors and music. I love the cd with an hour of classical music, and I think it will be great to have my children relax to the music! :)
Founded in 2003 by Heather Maclean, Little Laureate set the bar for a new quality standard with the release of their first two DVDs. Astoundingly well-received by both the public and the press, they won several major awards, including Parenting magazine’s Video of the Year, the National Parenting Publications Association’s Gold Award, and many others. In fact, in an unprecedented write-in poll, the readers of #1-rated Parents magazine voted the Little Laureate series one of the “Best Video Series for Small Children of All Time.”



Join Star on a journey through imagination and inspiration. Van Gogh, Picasso and the art of over 40 other artists come alive to the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Bizet. Share the wonders of our world through early exposure to art, world consciousness and culture with Little Laureate's award-winning series.


Gift set includes:
30-minute premium DVD
60-minute CD of classical music, and
24-page parent booklet filled with expert tips on raising a creative child. 30 minutes of premium content from Emmy Award-winning team, 3 enhanced viewing options, Optimized for HDTV, and introducing "The Crawl," a revolutionary onscreen parent guide of art history, parenting tips and family art activities
1 hour of classical music performed by the Moscow International Orchestra. Not only is the amazing DVD soundtrack included, but extra bonus tracks as well!
24 pages of information on the art, artists and music along with expert tips on raising a creative child. There is a total of 3 different DVD/CD gift packs: My World Adventure, My World Gallery, and My World Colors. Little Laureate is such a great series to teach great cultural differences, art, music, and colors.

Ive actually been eyeing these DVDs and thought about getting them for Connor for Christmas! I am huge on exposing him to as many cultures as possible as early as possible. We recently moved to Montgomery, Al and though we love it here and my family all lives here sadly there are still alot of closed minded individuals here that Connor will be exposed to and I do NOT want to raise a son like that. Ive had the opportunity to move all over the country and meet lots of interesting people from all over the world. I won't have that chance to give that to Connor (though in some ways moving all the time was frustrating) but I do want him to learn the same lessons I learned. Every little way I can give him that gift is worth the effort. These DVDS obviously will not solve that problem for me its one small step in that direction. (we hoped to get a set to review but we were not as lucky! LOL you lucky duck!)

It is amazing to me all kids can learn today with fun toys. Think about 100 years ago or earlier...most of civilization. There is so much information available...these sound really neat.
