If you grew up in the 1970s, you’re probably already humming one of the Schoolhouse Rock’s songs. If you require a little more background information, Schoolhouse Rock presented animated, musical shorts on Saturday morning broadcast television back when I was in the target audience. They were educational (focusing on grammar, math, history, etc.) but decidedly fun! Who remembers ‘Conjunction Junction’? How about ‘I’m Just a Bill’ or ‘We the People,’ which is why I can recite (most of) the U.S. Constitution today? A personal favorite is ‘Verb! That’s What’s Happening!’
I recently checked out this DVD and took it in the car on a 3,000-mile road trip to Texas. It was a huge hit with our whole family – the 4-year-old, the 2-year-old, and the thirtysomething set. As a bonus, my preschooler can now tell you what a noun is! Revisit your inner child by checking out this DVD.
You'll find it on the ground floor of the library with the DVDs at call number LB1555 .S35 2002.
