I've made ten DVDs for children so far and this is the one that sells the best. Children love watching ocean animals and this DVD is full of them. Except for a few scuba divers, the video footage is comprised entirely of ocean animals. There's sea turtles, manatees, humpback whales, lobsters, sharks, dolphins, crabs, sawfish, sea otters and dozens of others species. And the DVD loops continuously so parents never have to stop what they're doing to restart it! And in case you're wondering, there's absolutely nothing offensive on it, guaranteed.
The songs on this DVD are in a wide variety of styles, from New Orleans jazz to folk to reggae. Some are very upbeat and some are very soothing. Because the songs are very well recorded and the footage is live ocean animals, adults can enjoy watching this DVD as much as children.
The soundtrack, from the highly acclaimed "Sea Tunes for Kids" CD, won a Parent's Choice award. It's sung by Brent Holmes, produced by Emmy nominee Dave Hoffner, and features some of the finest musicians in the country. Richard Bennett, one of the most renowned guitarists in the world, played acoustic and electric guitars, ukulele, Danelectro baritone guitar, banjo and bouzouki. Billy Huber played trombone. Joe Getsi played Clarinet. Hollie Farris played trumpet. John Mauk played pennywhistles. Jeff Taylor played accordians and Dave Hoffner played keyboards, synthesizer, banjo and all other instruments. The music was recorded and mixed in Franklin, TN and mastered by Hank Williams at Mastermix in Nashville.
"I am a first grade teacher and every student in my class just loved this dvd. The songs were catchy and the real sea life creatures provided wonderful teaching opportunities" - T. Hunter
"My three year old son calls this his "quiet fish" DVD. We also have Finding Nemo, but he has yet to watch it since he loves this DVD so much more. He is learning all the names of the fish/sea animals, and the songs are nice and catchy."
"My son is almost two and he loves this DVD. He asks for it every day. The music is unique and entertaining for all ages. The images are great as well! I have bought this DVD for all my friends with children and expectant parents. It is a favorite!"
"I can't stop singing these songs!!! The video is awesome and sometimes I just connect it to the TV with no sound to be a giant screen saver....fish tank in my living room!"
"This DVD is beautifully done. If your class is studying Sea Life I would suggest buying this product. I am a music teacher and the CD is great too."
"Our grandkids are simply fascinated by this DVD...A great diversion when the kids are getting rowdy and acting up...calms them right down."
