Family Movie Review - The World of Richard Scarry Videos


 My favorite Richard Scarry video is "Richard Scarry's Best Sing-A-Long Mother Goose Video!"

From Amazon: "A great way to introduce or underscore the value of Mother Goose, this video uses a simple story about Huckle Cat's search for his missing friend Lowly Worm as a platform for enjoying the famous rhymes. While his mother sings lullabies, Huck wishes on a star that he could find Lowly soon, a wish that carries over into his subsequent dream of traveling through Mother Gooseland. There he meets familiar characters--Old King Cole, Little Miss Muffett, Little Bo Peep--who sing their own rhymes. It's Old King Cole who sends Huck directly to Mother Goose for help. This is a good video for assorted ages. Toddlers are easily enchanted by the cadence and rhymes of Mother Goose material, while the 2-to-5-year-old set can enjoy the story, too. The rest of us can appreciate the wonderfully busy animation and the touching tale of a boy's search for his friend." --Tom Keogh

If you can find a copy at a thrift or consignment store, good luck! A USED DVD is $40!!! I wanted to upgrade our VHS, but I think I will wait a bit:)

I found The Best ABC Video and The Best Counting Video DVD's for $1 each at a yard sale this summer.

This clip is from The Best Learning Songs Video by Richard Scarry. I LOVE this song and we had a VHS tape which I re-wound countless times to write the words down and memorize to sing to the children.
