Review:

Toddlers who regularly tag along with Emmy and Max on their lesson-laden joyrides to Dragon Land via the PBS series DragonTales will devour Adventures in Dragon Land, a five-episode bonanza that also weaves three catchy sing- and dance-along musical segments into the mix. Gathered here are "To Kingdom Come," in which Ord gets a crash course on the benefits of sharing after accidentally cooping himself and the rest of the fire-breathing gang up in a faraway kingdom; "Baby Troubles," about the energy-sapping effects of taking care of even the sweetest infant (in this case, Cassie's little sister, Kiki); "Bad Share Day," a meditation on the sometimes tricky proposition of speaking up for oneself; "Zak Takes a Dive," a Zak- and Weezie-centered episode that exposes Zak's unwillingness to try swimming for what it is--unfounded, fun-spoiling fear; and "The Forest of Darkness," another fear dismantler in which Ord, with help from his friends, conquers the creeps deep into a foreign starlit forest. Most of these 10-minute cartoons will come as repeats for fans, but who's complaining? Kids from 2 to 6 can't get enough of this series, and given its commitment to incorporating thought-provoking predicaments into each episode, caregivers shouldn't mind either. DVD edition special features include English and Spanish audio tracks; English, French, and Spanish subtitles; and several sing-along tunes. --Tammy La Gorce

From the Back Cover:

Includes the adventures "To Kingdom Come," where Ord's reluctance to share the wishing shell sends everyone to a strange land with no way home. But he finds the answer: when you share, you can make any wish come true. When baby Kiki's toy gets squashed and she's too upset to nap, everyone joins together to help Cassie babysit in "Baby Troubles." In "Bad Share Day," Cassie discovers a magic crayon. Everybody wants it but no one wants to share. They learn that being selfish is lonely but when you share, everyone gets to play together. "Zak Takes a Dive," in which Zak has never been swimming before and he's scared. But after he gets his feet wet, he likes it and realizes that trying new activities is fun. In "The Forest of Darkness," Ord is scared of the dark. When Zak shows him that even a little light takes the darkness away, we learn there's nothing to fear at all. The sing-along songs are "Hello," "Clap" and "Round & Round."
