As a Library director and a grandmother, I think they are wonderful; very innovative. I think that it's introducing children to stories, especially those that are preliterate, in ways that we've never been able to do before. -Cindy (Teacher) What a wonderful tool for our kids. I will be checking out more! -Amanda (Parent) Can't wait to get more at our library! -Tim (Parent) There's something about being able to hold a little movie in their hands that they lovedÔ I think this is a great idea for road trips, appointments, and quiet times in the afternoon. -Sarah (Parent) Fits perfectly in my 3 year olds hands. She loves it. -Angela (Librarian & Parent) LOVE LOVE LOVE them! And so do my kids who can't wait to watch them! -Jessica (Parent)
