Marshall Publishing - "Lots & Lots of Penguins and Their Happy Feet" DVD Set Review

If you are a homeschooler, there is a good chance that you have seen the As Seen On TV  "Lots and Lots of" DVD's on the shelves of your local library. That is where I first became introduced to Marshall Publishing & Promotions, Inc. Not long after that, I was given the opportunity to review their  "Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks" DVD and book set. You can read that review here, but let me tell you, it was AWESOME! My son still enjoys watching the dvd and looking at the full-color book that came with it. The songs by award-winning musician James Coffey are catchy and kid pleasing (I've even gotten some of them stuck in my head)!

Marshall Publishing and Promotions, Inc. has a goal to provide lots and lots of media fun for everyone through their award-winning products that educate as well as entertain. Judging from the DVDs and books I have had the opportunity to review, they have met that goal in spades!

Most recently, I reviewed "Lots & Lots of Penguins and Their Happy Feet" 2 DVD set plus free DVD, also from the "As Seen on TV" brand. This is currently on sale for $19.95 and if you enter coupon code TOS27 at checkout, you can get FREE FIRST CLASS SHIPPING as well! That's a savings of $7.95! The DVDs are also available individually for $12.95 for "Lots & Lots of Penguins and Their Happy Feet" and $9.95 for "Penguins in the Wild". One of the things I love about this company is that along with accepting 4 of the major credit cards, they also use Paypal and they have a 60 day, 100% satisfaction guarantee!

This latest DVD release from Marshall Publishing & promotions, Inc. has been Dove Family-Approved Suitable for all ages and has received a National Parenting Publications Award.

"Lots & Lots of Playful Penguins" is 75 minutes of penguin music videos, facts & trivia on all 17 species of penguins, and pure penguin FUN! The "Lots & Lots of Penguins in the Wild" truly does take you "up-close and personal", and is 30 minutes in duration. The video is amazing. Along with the penguins' natural sounds of singing, squawking and grunting, the cameramen capture the penguins in their natural habitats playing, swimming, feeding their young and just being penguins in the wild. There is no narration or music on this video to distract one from enjoying this wonderful video experience.

My 4 year old and I have been working on a penguin lapbook. (If you are interested in making your own, please click HERE for resource links.) Receiving this DVD set to review couldn't have come at a better time!

Marshall Publishing has a penguin STUDY GUIDE (scroll down past the DVD description), that we used along with the DVDs & other resources while making our lapbook. I had never realized that there are 17 different species of penguins and that most of them don't even live in Antarctica! 

I figured my son's favorite penguin would be the Emperor penguin, but it's actually the Macaroni penguin due to one of his current favorite songs, "Yankee Doodle Dandy".

Party Like A Penguin!

Having the ability to download the theme song lyrics as well as the "Party Like a Penguin" bonus DVD made our lessons extra fun. Hearing my 4 year old giggle was worth all the silly waddling I did around the living room. 

Since my littlest ones have watched these DVDs, they frequently request to watch the "Lots & Lots of Penguins in the Wild" video as they go to sleep. There is something fantastically mesmerizing about watching these fascinating creatures! 

Was there anything that I didn't I like? Well, there was one part of the guide that I chose to skip over, which was the nickname given to the African penguin (think "donkey"). I didn't feel it was appropriate to share that with my 4 year old, and certainly not with my 2 year old who was sitting next to us while we were working on our lapbook. Other than that, I loved everything about this DVD set and am thrilled to have it as part of our homeschool library!
