My two-year-old's favorite from this DVD is the "What Do the Animals Say?" story and loves repeating the sounds. It's so cute to watch! His favorite sounds to imitate: "Caw, Caw"! Awesome! While my two-year-old gallops and sings along my four year old is capturing the words printed on the screen along with the melody.
