Watch It Wednesday...Barney: A-Counting We Will Go

Happy Watch It Wednesday, All!  This week I have everyone's favorite purple dinosaur, Barney in the spotlight!  Barney just came out with a brand new DVD yesterday, A-Counting We Will Go. 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Recognizing numbers has never been so much fun when Barney & Friends™ use songs, rhyme, dance and laughter to help little ones learn to count in Barney™: A-Counting We Will Go coming to DVD September 14, 2010 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. This special learning edition DVD comes packaged with a 64-page coloring and activity book, perfectly timed for when preschoolers head back to school and need to sharpen those counting skills!

Trusted by moms and adored by children, Barney displays sharing, caring, imagining, dancing and learning on television, online and through live events, home entertainment and publishing. The Emmy® award-winning series, Barney & Friends™ is one of the top-rated preschool shows today, airing on PBS KIDS® and Sprout®.

DVD SYNOPSIS

Two, four, six, eight, Barney wants to celebrate! While playing a game of Hide and Seek in the park, Baby Bop realizes that she can’t be the one to count to ten because she doesn’t know how — so Barney and the kids jump right in to help her. A trip to a make-believe market and a magical parade of numbers help to show her how exciting counting can be. While having fun, the kids learn an important lesson — you can’t go wrong when you have friends to count on!

As always, Barney manages to make learning and lessons fun with games and songs and lots of positive messages.  This video is recommended for ages 1-5 and I would agree with this recommendation gearing it more toward the 2-3 range for purpose of teaching numbers.  A&W enjoyed the DVD very much and it was a good reminder of the numbers they have already learned.  Included with the DVD was a great activity book which included coloring pages,  connect the dot, matching and more all with favorite Barney characters.  It is a great companion to the DVD.

I love how the show is so positive. The kids interact with each other and adults with respect and kindness. That's missing in so many shows today.
