We weren’t familiar with 3,2,1 Penguins! before receiving a copy of this DVD, but I thought the kids, especially Jack, would enjoy it. He’s always drawn to space adventures. These penguins live on a space shuttle with two children (who both wear glasses much to Bella’s delight) and have hilarious adventures with other animals. Each episode teaches a moral like don’t be jealous (the Green Eyed Monster), don’t be a glutton (More is More), and the importance of sharing (Give and Let Give). The message was effective – a few hours after watching it Jack started chanting “More is more!” to Bella when she asked for a fourth chocolate chip cookie. After four days at home (school holiday last week), the kids are still requesting the Penguins every day for quiet time.
