5.0 out of 5 stars Chicka Chicka Boom Boom -- the DVD**** 5 Stars!!!, March 23, 2005

My kids (boy and girl; 3 and 5) and I really like this DVD and the really funny thing is that we like the `additional' material even more than we like the main attraction which is not read but sung to a Caribbean beat.

Besides CCBB the other stories are:

Trashy Town

Rosie's Walk

The Caterpillar and the Polliwog

The Foolish Frog (by Pete Seeger)

Joey Runs Away

Changes Changes

In Trashy Town two cute rats follow the work of Mr. Gilly as he roams around Trashy Town cleaning it up with the help of his garbage truck. We were not familiar with this story before but the lyrics and topic are marvelously catchy.

"Dump it in... Smash it down... Drive around the trashy town."

Rosie's Walk is about a chicken that goes about her business in absolute ignorance of the pursuing fox and his travails. The artwork is marvelous and reminds me of colonial stitchwork.

The Caterpillar and the Polliwog and the Foolish Frog are in an older animation style, think early Sesame Street, but the stories are very good and Pete Seeger can really put out a fine toe-tapping tune.

Joey Runs Away is a story about how a young kangaroo runs away to find a `room' he won't have to clean up. All the other animals want to `rent' the pouch from Joey's mom, but of course she refuses. Joey and mom are reunited when Joey realizes that there is no place like home and hearth, and besides his room wasn't *that* messy.

Changes Changes is the wordless story of two little block people who make and remake their world each time out of the same set of blocks. Through adversity and hardship they persevere with love and creativity to form a family.

Simply a great collection of stories. We highly recommend this DVD.
