Mother Goose Club DVD Review

Nursery rhymes are such a timeless way for young children to discover the joy of learning and my little ones love the Emmy® Nominated 1-minute education programs Nursery Rhyme Singing Time with the Mother Goose Club on PBS.

Now children everywhere can sing and dance to the new Nursery Rhyme Singing Time with the Mother Goose Club DVD which features never before seen episodes. At 40 minutes in length, I found this to be the perfect time frame to captivate my children’s attention and keep them engaged as they danced the “Boogie Woogie” with Teddy Bear, laughed at “Jack’s Joke Shack” and sang “Itsy Bitsy Spider” with Eep and Teddy.

This live-action series features characters who are dressed in fun, vividly colored costumes and they bring the nursery rhymes to live through singing, clapping, moving and grooving.

Research has shown that Mother Goose nursery rhymes “are the building blocks for early literacy” through use of drama, simply story structure and new vocabulary words. I appreciate how this DVD reinforces phonetic awareness which is important to me as a home educating mom who is teaching three young children to read.

I also enjoy watching my children learn the words to their favorite nursery rhymes and I could see the confidence in them as they could sing an entire song. In fact, throughout the day and long after they had watched Nursery Rhyme Singing Time with the Mother Goose Club they were still singing and dancing.

Nursery Rhyme Singing Time with the Mother Goose Club on DVD includes 5 brand new live-action episodes, 14 live-action songs and 4 bonus nursery rhymes starring all of the fun Mother Goose Club characters. It is available for purchase for only $15. An excellent gift idea is the Mother Goose Club Super Pack which includes a fantastic collection-Mother Goose Club DVD, CD Vol. 1, CD Vol. 2 , Coloring Book and Stickers for only $32. You are invited to visit the Mother Goose Club website to purchase these items or to learn more about this excellent preschool resource.
