Peter Weatherall’s Dvds
www.kidsinglish.com
From the Website: "Hi. My name is Dr Peter Weatherall and I'm an independent children's musician and animator. My aim is to create high quality educational songs and videos for children, teachers and parents. I deliver educational content to children that they will want to watch and listen to and that will stick: they simply won't be able to get the information contained in my songs and videos out of their heads. That's a guarantee. My aim is to engage and educate young minds and not simply to sell "edutainment" products and make a profit. I have a genuine commitment to enriching young minds, not to feed them mind candy and line my own pockets in the process. So if you are looking for something different to the normal commercial offerings out there (Little Einsteins, Dora the Explorer, etc) you've come to the right place: hopefully your children will learn something of real educational value: to spell, do mathematics, develop factual scientific knowledge of physics, chemistry and biology, get A-grades on their school tests, and one day become a writer, mathematician or scientist . . . and have fun in the process. I want to help create informed and intelligent young people rather than the next generation of consumers. I am trying to sell you something on this website: not slickly packaged edutainment that will divert your children for an hour or two, but a vision of what the future should be in terms of audio-visual education for children.

They love watching—and the more they watch, the more they learn. 2. Words are the stars. Text is the dominant element onscreen. Big, clear text. In fact, Readeez are more like books than they are like other videos. 3. Readeez use SyllableSync. With this breakthrough technique, kids both see and hear each syllable of each word. Simultaneously.
