WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Let’s Go Sledding” is the latest Caillou adventure. The little guy learns patience and to understand his limitations as a Charlie Brown looking kid. It’s kind of odd since the program wants to teach kids how to be better people, but it is constantly focusing on how fragile the title brat has turned out to be. I’m not sure if morbidity is something that your kids pick up on, otherwise you might have an interesting conversation at the end of this disc. Still, it’s worth checking out.
The DVD comes with coloring pages and activities as the special features. The A/V Quality is strong with a supportive transfer and a Dolby audio track. The Dolby track doesn’t get much back channel action outside of the few major crowd scenes. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents of young kids.
