Judge David Johnson came home one day to find his apartment cleaned out and his car vandalized. Only a mysterious blue paw-print was left at the scene of the crime.
Four alphabet-powered play dates.
Blue, the fun little dog who broke out from Blue's Clues (and the world of two-dimensional animation) to front her own puppet-laden show, is here to escort your small children through the mind-blowing world of the alphabet. This disc contains four alphabet/writing-centric episodes of Blue's Room and Blue's Clues:
• "The Power of the Alphabet"
Puzzles and games and songs flow out, aimed at familiarizing the kids with letters and introductory spelling. It's a cool little program, attractively produced and sporting some clever games to foster learning.
Learning Skills (according to the disc case): Literacy skills, letter recognition ands sounds, and spelling.
• "The Alphabet Train"
Here's a solid companion to "The Power of the Alphabet," presented in that enjoyable, infectious Blue's Clues way.
Learning Skills: Letters, Emerging Literacy, Phonemic Awareness.
• "Let's Write"
• "Magenta's Messages"
There it is—four entertaining, easily accessible episodes well-chosen to focus on the themes of letter recognition and writing. Plus, the disc contains some extras to further supplement the orgy of learning sure to take place: the "Doodle, Doodle…Spell Game," where kids can complete words that have been drawn on the screen, and two Blue's Room shorts. Good stuff.
