Three affordable children’s DVDs from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment make for excellent additions to public library children’s DVD collections. Thomas & Friends Engines and Escapades ($14.98, 50 min.) collects several episodes never seen on TV, continuing Thomas’ railroad adventures and introducing his new friends Madge. English, Spanish, and French voice tracks round out this energetic children’s collection of short yet adventurous antics. Bob the Builder: Building Bobland Bay ($14.98, 54 min.) also offers content never seen on TV, as it follows Bob and the Can-Do Crew as they work with some brand new machine team members to create a new town of fun on the sea coast. English, Spanish, and French tracks enhance this charming and constructive computer-animated anthology, sure to pique young people’s interests in the fascinating construction trade. Barney: Animal ABCs ($14.98, 56 min.) is the most educational of the set; it follows Barney and his live-action friends as they play a game to find an animal for each letter of the alphabet. Featuring English and Spanish options, Barney: Animal ABCs makes learning fun, enhanced by the sheer delight of seeing exotic real-life animals. All three DVDs are especially recommended as family-friendly birthday or holiday gifts to young people.
