I know that some people are totally against their kids watching tv, but we find the shows to be cute... and sometimes a good way to teach him things! Some are for pure enjoyment though and I remember Babar from ages ago! We received a couple DVD's for review, but haven't had time to watch them... Kindergarten can be busy!!! I will tell you that every single time he sees the Geronimo Stilton DVD, he is eager to watch it... As it is brand new to us both!!! Here are a few new titles to keep in mind when you start making your Christmas list!
