As I mentioned in a prior post, My son, Mister, is a huge Elmo fan. This furry red monster with silly laugh and fun filled antics drops by our house daily to entertain and teach my kids. In the latest DVD, Firefly Fun and Buggy Buddies, Elmo and many of his friends learn, and sing, about various insects. Oscar and his pet worm, Slimey, go to adopt a pet bug for Slimey. Their song Big Bug Hug is too cute.

What I thought…
The thing I love about Sesame Workshop DVD’s is that they teach without the kids realizing they are being taught. As we sat outside during the evening recently, a firefly flew by and lit up. Mister was so excited because he saw a firefly, and of course my husband and I had to chuckle and sing “fly little firefly fly…”
What I would change…
Firefly Fun and Buggy Buddies is my favorite Elmo DVD yet. I wouldn’t change anything.
