SPOON is a story about appreciating your own gifts and talents because the grass always seems greener on the other side. Besides the featured story SPOON , one of our all time favorites is the fun anatomy story with song called Dem Bones.
That New Animal... and more stories about the new baby was a delight to watch as well. Smile for Auntie is a hoot! Blueberries for Sal brings back memories from my childhood of a time I was lost in the supermarket. All of the stories are fun to watch with your child or grandchild. We love all of the classic stories and the vast variety of illustrations and songs.
