Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (6 ):

This gentle series gives preschoolers and their parents a chance to escape the daily mayhem and cuddle up on the couch for some top-notch storytelling. Enhanced by beautiful animation, Toot & Puddle brings to life a cast of endearing animal characters who delight in discoveries big and small and are always ready to learn ways to be a better friend and a more socially responsible person -- er, pig.

The show's heartwarming stories -- like coming in second in a race or not wanting to listen to others' ideas in planning a party -- are easily related to real-life scenarios for preschoolers, so parents can follow up with discussions tailored to issues their own piglets might be facing. Toot and Puddle's worldly travels will also pique kids' natural curiosity about other cultures as the friendly pigs explore local language, dress, music, and cuisine. If your kids can't get enough of these joyous characters, be sure to head to the library to check out some of their other adventures.
