my oldest grandson likes dragons, so he already hooked.
and Jane being a girl ,as long as she's strong,fearless,and
can stick with the boys she's in....At five.she is another playmate as far as he's concern.
But he seems to like the little adventures that they go through more when the dragon appears.
I sit with him when he's at my house and we watch it together, I must say I like the stories myself ,I wouldn't change not one thing.This kind of show lets kids see both sides of the coin.You can then ask questions on how or what your child feelings are about
the situations.We have talks about what we just saw
almost after every show.
And it helps him solve his own problems,I have notice
by something he already seen on a show.
So keep up the great job your doing and keep the
dragon alive for my son please.(smile)
He may not grasp everything that goes on in the show
but he will ask me what does that mean,when he don't
I am lifted and my moral character is supported by this program.
Every episode of Jane and the Dragon give me pause, teach me lessons, and make me think on the Aristotelian plane regarding how I treat my fellow human beings. Every episode has a message, an example of how things can seem to be diametrically opposed, but that in reality, the code of a knight indicates that only one path may be followed in order to "Do The Right Thing".
I am a highly educated adult, and I need these messages to reinforce the ideals that I was taught.
So do Today's children.
I'm an adult, and I watch this show every Sat. morning in San Francisco. It has great characters, funny yet meaningful story lines, and may inspire kids to look into computer art as a career. One of the best shows on TV !
I am 20 and I love watching Jane and the Dragon. I watch every night at 11:30 before I go to bed. There is just something about this show that hucked me and I just stayed. The emotions that Dragon have melt my heart and Jane and his closness that melt my soul. Its a good show to let young girls know that you can be what you want to be. You may have to work a little bit harder but you will seep the reward.
I'm a 61 year old educator and a feminist since the early 70's. I LOVE THIS SHOW! I love that Jane is the heroine. I love the real and often quite subtle human emotions that every character shows, and I love that these emotions are deeply respected and dealt with. I am always impressed by the emotion-driven motives in the show, and the emotional growth that happens in every episode. This show could be a catalist for excellent classroom discussions!
Jane and the Dragon is one of my favourite childrens series. I have all the DVD's. Jane is an inspiring role model for my two girls 8 & 10. She is funny, strong, kind, thoughtful and fair. The storyline is interesting and provides just the right mix of excitement and a little moralising. Well done Weta Workshop and Nelvana. At last a story that doesn't scream at you with banal, smart semi adult remarks that put people down. This is a sensitive, subtle story that appeals to all ages. The music is great. Jane is a heroine to be reckoned with!!! Big fan!!!
Wonderful and wholesome stories for children of all ages.
I accidentally came across Jane and the Dragon, and now I watch it every chance I get...AND I recommend it to all the students I teach, Great show! I wish there were more like it. I would give it 10 stars if that was possible! I am now hoping there will be last-season videos offered for sale soon. I will buy them all!!!!
This is not a show just for girls. I have 3 boys and one girl. We all sit and watch Jane and root for her. It has helped eliminate the "you can't cuz youre a girl" from my boys vocab!! Mom and Dad enjoy this too. It is one show that has captured all of us. Speaks of honesty and honor and integrity not just problem solving. Also Jane always keeps her word,refreshing!
Great storylines, great characters, I wish they had made a second season. Everyone in our house enjoys it from my husband and me to my 1 and 2 year olds.
The only thing some may not care for is a little bit of sparring in a few episodes. Another episode also shows a skeleton, not in a scary way, but it is there. My kids haven't even asked about it. One thing I love about it is Gunther the antihero in the show is not a horrible enemy, but a somewhat friend and knows when things have gone to far and helps solve the problem. Great show!
SUPER show w/ a female lead that appeals to boys and girls.
A rare case where the TV show is better than the book. The books are very bathroom humor-ish, and okay, but the show is phenomenal - great messages, super characters, and funny. For girls, Jane is an extraordinary role model and a breath of fresh air compared to most female characters in TV and film. Even better, this is a show that is great for boys and girls (my son loves it too) -- most shows with female leads seem written only for girls. This is written for everyone
MORE LIKE JANE!
