Nick Jr. Favorites: The First Day of School DVD Review

Nick Jr Favorites: The First Day of 

Another great new DVD release is now available for sale, and is a perfect DVD to get your younger kids ready for school. Whether it is their first day of preschool or their first day in a new classroom, this DVD is filled with their favorite characters and lessons to help them feel more at ease. My daughter likes to pretend she's going to school during playtime, as some of her older playmates attend preschool and many of my piano students talk about school when they wait for their lessons. 

We are big Nick Jr. viewers in our home, so this DVD is a perfect compilation of a variety of different characters and programs, where I don't have to go and grab another DVD if she requests a different Nick Jr. show than is already in the DVD player. My daughter adores all of these shows, but definitely is beginning to love Blue's Clues and continues to ask for Dora and Diego on a regular basis. Look for the new Nick Jr. The First Day of School DVD at a retailer near you, or find it online on Amazon.com.
