DVD GIVEAWAY


I was recently in contact with Paul Boese who is an award winning TV producer and director. He sent me a copy of his DVD, called
Under Construction to review..

I watched it, and also had the kids in my Summer program watch it and they LOVED it(SO DID I)!! It is a short DVD, hosted by the very attractive Charlie the Construction Worker, about five of the most widely used construction vehicles. Each vehicle is explained and spelled on screen,and is featured for several minutes so the children really get to see how the equipment works. I really loved that the video doesn't just show a quick picture of the equipment. It really gives the children time to see the construction vehicle in action! It also has this great sing along song that is very catchy and the chidren will love, I know mine did! By the end of the DVD the little ones were happily singing along to the song! Also, it was the perfect length, the children sat for the entire program,
seeming interested in all of it.. Some of the boys even asked if I could play it again - it was really cute!

Here is A little bit about Under Construction :
Under Construction was developed by award winning TV producer and director, Paul Boese, who brings his 15 years of film and television experience to the Under Construction Video Series. As a producer for PBS documentaries and television programming including The Oprah Winfrey show, Paul is committed to quality and educational programming for children. "I saw that my nieces and nephews loved construction vehicles but weren't given an opportunity for personal discovery from the videos that were already on the market so I decided to create something that lets them discover, learn and experience these vehicles on their own at a more realistic pace."

I give this short, educational DVD an A+.... And feel that children will love the action of the construction vehicles and the music...

Under Construction is an entertaining, educational and fun way for your child to safely watch learn and listen about real construction
vehicles at work! Click here to get your own copy of
UNDER CONSTRUCTION for just $14.95...

Don't enter me (um, I don't work with kids anymore. I'm pretty sure college students would just stare at me blankly if I showed a video like this to them.), but I just wanted to say: You are amazing!! How the heck do you run into this kind of stuff? Wow.
