The kids also help singer Crystal organize a HUGE benefit concert to make everyone aware that the Big Pond is being recklessly overfished and share what everyone can do to help!

My Thoughts

My kids have always loved Dinosaur Train. Buddy and the Pteranodon family go off on a variety of exciting adventures on the Dinosaur Train. Along the way, they meet lots of other friends and always discover new things. This DVD includes eight exciting episodes that focus on adventures in the water.

My children just loved the selection on this DVD.  This is a great series and this DVD is a great addition to our collection. It has tons of great scenes and we can watch it over and over again.   In addition to lots of action, kids always learn some dinosaur facts in every episode.
