The moment my son saw the Elmo Can Do It! DVD, he immediately requested, “Daddy, I want to see the one where Elmo is a robot!”
As we watched the segment, Help-O-Bots, he didn’t say a word; he was mesmerized by seeing Elmo and his friends being Help-o-bots.
This DVD is over 2 hours long, which makes it ideal for a road trip; by the way.
What I noticed about it, as an adult, is that a common theme appeared to be introducing children to the concept of emotional intelligence.
As the label on the cover explains, the official themes are task persistence, friendship, and self-control.
Our family definitely had a great time finishing watching it tonight.
