While I was never much of a tomboy, I’ve always been a fan of John Deere…..mostly because my Grandaddy gave my a John Deere tractor early on (and a winter hat). Yes, I still have both! 🙂
Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to review my first John Deere DVD for kids, Earth Mover Action. While we enjoyed it, I must say that it pales in comparison (in my opinion) to the new release, John Deere Fun on the Farm.
Here’s the scoop:
A fun and educational preschool video for the younger set. You’ll learn where food comes from and about the growing season – planting, cultivating, and the harvest in the fall. You’ll see tractors and combines and lots of farm animals. Doodle Rooster narrates and is joined by Harvey Horse and Bell, the dairy cow. Play the Cloud Game and try to find animals in the sky. You’ll be amazed at how many you will find.
Visit the Farm in the Zoo at Lincoln Park Zoo, right in the middle of Chicago. You will also go to the John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline, Illinois to see how John Deere makes their combines. All this fun is set to nine new original songs by our favorite singer/songwriter, James Coffey.
I even learned a few things from watching this video. It’s fun and entertaining for kids AND they are learning – it doesn’t get much better than that! It’s a great introduction to where our food comes from…..not just the basics, but facts about the states that fruits and vegetables grow in. The kids get quizzed too! Do you know where soybeans grow? I didn’t! 🙂
With fun spin-off songs like “Wheels on the Tractor” and games like the “Cloud Game” – you know, what does that cloud look like……..and oh, the”Letter game”, a great reinforcement of what we’re learning at home, I’m more than happy to let my 3-year old daughter watch John Deere Fun on the Farm.
