Giveaway & Review: Elmo's Rainbow and Other Springtime Stories (DVD) [CLOSED]

This new Sesame Street DVD titled Elmo's Rainbow and Other Springtime Stories was recently released on March 9th right in time for the upcoming changing of seasons. There is even a special bonus episode, which features the beloved Cookie Monster as the Cookie Bunny if you are thinking of giving this DVD to a child for Easter.

In this DVD, your child will learn all about rainbows, bees, and the four seasons. Even our 6yr old son learned something he didn't already know . . . how to use water as a prism to separate the colors within white light to create a rainbow. Of course there were many lessons that were easier to grasp and were geared towards preschoolers, such as how to draw a rainbow.

I must say that the lovable Abby Cadabby's spells-gone-wrong really made this DVD because these magical mishaps made the impossible possible. This encouraged my children to use their imaginations.

You should be able to find this and other Sesame Street DVDs at the Sesame Street Store and at most other retailers of children DVDs.

Thank you to Warner Home Video and Sesame Workshop for sending us a sample DVD free of charge to base this review upon and for providing a second DVD for our contest prize.
