"My toddlers are rarely allowed to watch TV or videos. This video is one of the few that I have found to be entertaining and educational. The combination of classical music and poetry is just fabulous. I only wish more videos were of this caliber."

"I rented this from our local library and found in one week both my children wanting this video over all our other favorites. It highlights the wonderful book by Seuss but also presents the Minnesota orchrestra. The music in this is so wonderfully done and Holly Hunter's narration is perfect. This truly brings to life the different moods color can play in our lives. There is additional footage on the making of the video and a look at the author seen in the eyes of his wife. Enjoyable for the entire family. My 2.5 year daughter has been reciting lines from this story. It has been so much fun and I just had to buy a copy!"

"This DVD is an excellent way to introduce kids to concert music while exposing them to Dr. Suess. It is very creative. The voice over and animation are very cute and the music is excellent. My 3 year old has no trouble sitting through the 45 minutes and is thoroughly enchanted. I am pleased to put this DVD on whenever she requests it. I feel she is getting something out of the experience and not just "zoning out in front of the tube.""

A fantastic and captivating movie for all ages

"The quick and at times slow pace of the music and animation grabs, and holds the attention of even very active children unlike anything I have ever seen. The vast array of emotions expressed and portrayed by the boy illustrates reality. It shows children that it is OK to not have "pink days" 24-7. The interactive games teach about the animation, music and instruments used in the production and promotes interest in these topics in all ages. The games also promote excellent observation and comprehension skills. It will be a family favorite."

Educational, Artistic, Creative Video!

"RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 2 TO 102!Great video to watch with your kids over and over! Beautifully animated to keep kids interested! Teaches children of the arts -from animation/graphic arts, to classical music and the ability to express how they feel by way of color and the emotions and mood of the music. The Minnesota Orchestra performed this piece brilliantly. Instruments were introduced with each color and expressed boldly by drums or softly with violins. Involvement of the orchestra demonstrated clapping, stomping and smiles among the musicians.Narration by actress, Holly Hunter was a treat! She explains the way each color reflects a 'mood' or emotion from gloomy blacks, and browns to happy pink and sunny yellow. The compilation of this video is creative, intelligent, and fun! 'Fantasia' eat your heart out."
