This video has helped our late talker!! I have a 4 year old son with autism, who has always loved the entire Baby BumbleBee series. They have really helped him to be able to generalize his vocabulary and expand his concepts.....like when he sees that there is such a thing as picture of a lion, and a toy lion, and a real lion. I also have a sweet 2 year old girl who has only recently started talking. We of course were concerned, but she has really blossomed, especially in regards to this video! She and her brother will sit there together,and when they show a letter, they both will SHOUT it out at the same time. They also will repeat the sound the letters make along with the kids on the video. The video shows a variety of words that start with a letter(which both kids love announcing too!), then shows a little girl writing the letter. I keep foam letters in the bathtub,and now when my daughter gets her bath, she is so excited to pick up the letters and name them on her own. All of these Baby Bumblebee videos have helped my kids with object labels which in turn has helped them improve their receptive language.
My little boy can now sound out words by recognizing the letters in the words and knowing what sounds those letters are supposed to make. The video is a true learning tool.
This moderately entertaining dvd features kids only and has encouraged my 5 year old daughter to want write her uppercase alphabet. We have a big library of education dvds and this one adds diversity and is quite educational.
