Why Dragonfly: What’s Up With The Moon? DVD Review

Another great review from Kailani over at An Island Review! Here’s what she thought about the new Why Dragonfly DVD, What’s Up With The Moon?

Why Dragonfly: What’s Up With The Moon?

Has your child ever asked you why they can see the Moon during the day? Well, Girlie Girl asked that very question this morning on the way to school. I’m not kidding! I really didn’t have an answer for her but little did I know that I was about to find out.

When I got home, Baby Bug and I started watching Why Dragonfly: What’s Up With The Moon? courtesy of Mom Fuse.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Winner of a Parents’ Choice Approved Award and an iParenting Media Award. You Never Know Where Curiosity Can Take You! Encourage your children’s curiosity and spark their imagination with this award-winning DVD. Created by a mom, this “What’s Up With the Moon?” episode will captivate and engage kids with action and adventure! Fly along with an endearing magical dragonfly, named Archimedes, who whisks Ryan and Emily off on an adventure to find out why they can see the moon during the day. They visit with the experts at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Space Science Institute where they learn more than they ever imagined they would. Children as young as two years old love the animation and on-screen action, while older kids (and parents!) find out lots of interesting things about the moon!

MY REVIEW

Talk about an education! Baby Bug and I watched this great DVD as Archimedes the magical dragonfly whisks Ryan and Emily off on an adventure to find out why they can see the moon during the day. To do this, Archmedes has to shrink Ryan and Emily to a tiny size so he can fly them to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in search for the answer. The mix of computerized animation and real-life made this a very interesting and engaging program. Even Baby Bug wanted to watch it over and over again.

What I really enjoyed was the way the doctors and scientists used Emily and Ryan in interactive explanations on how the Earth and Moon co-exist. It made the technical side of the topic more suited for younger kids and helped Girlie Girl better understand the universe.  This could have been a very complicated topic but they presented it in a way that even I could understand. ;-)

So why can you see the Moon during the day? Get the video and find out!
