Our Thoughts: We had never seen the Wild Kratts series on tv before, so this was a pleasant surprise. The episodes kept my attention as well as a easily wandering 3 year old. Everyone can learn something from this dvd about caring and protecting wildlife before its gone. It is a interesting blend of animation and real life scenes that create a lively and easy learning experience for young kids. There is a nice variety of animals from wolves, snakes, birds and fishes in these particular episodes.

We gave this DVD two thumbs-up! We were both left with the feeling of wanting to learn more. Which is never a bad thing! We will be watching the show and buying more of these dvds.

*Please note that I received the DVD so I could give my fair and honest opinion. The opinions expressed in this review are my own and were not influenced in any way.*
