Interplanet Janet is a galaxy girl, but she has a soft spot for Earth.
Remember learning your times tables and grammar with Schoolhouse Rock? Now a whole new generation is discovering educational concepts with catchy songs.
Schoolhouse Rock: Earth introduces children to ecology and encourages kids to do their part to preserve scarce resources.
With all-new tracks by the original creators and favorite vocal artists, Schoolhouse Rock: Earth preserves the look and feel of the 1970s and 1980s cartoons. While I am partial to the classics, my daughter really enjoyed the DVD. She is a fan of the polar bears, whose story links the eco-conscious music videos together.
My favorite is The Rainforest, a funky tapestry of indigenous motifs, Latin and African rhythms, natural sounds, and rock beats.
Junior environmentalists will be bopping along and learning, Schoolhouse Rock style.
WANT IT: Schoolhouse Rock: Earth ($18) is available today, March 31, 2009.
