DVD review- Sesame Street: Monster Manners!

*Disclosure: I received a copy of this DVD to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

I know we're a little late to the game, given that my kids are 5 and almost 7, but we have recently started watching Sesame Street in our house. Vivian, in particular, is a big fan of the show and loves to watch and learn.  So she was very excited when a new DVD arrived for her in the mail. It's entitled Sesame Street: Monster Manners and here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:

Please join the Sesame Street neighborhood as they turn children into well-mannered little monsters as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization, release Sesame Street: Monster Manners. Celebrity appearances include Henry Cavill, Zac Efron, David Hyde Pierce, Cobie Smulders and Colbie Caillat as they help teach children master polite manners.  This special release also features bonus classic material and will be available on DVD and digital June 10, 2014 for $14.98 / $9.99 SRP.  Join us for this new release of Sesame Street: Monster Manners, thank you!

Learning manners is crucial for young children.  In Sesame Street: Monster Manners, everyone’s favorite characters help children develop these essential life skills.  First, Sesame Street friends try to help Rosita control her emotions and keep her hands to herself.  Next, Prairie tries to help Cookie Monster perfect his polite table manners.  Finally, Can Cookie Monster stop himself from gobbling all the cookies when a Cookie Connoisseur, played by David Hyde Pierce, visits Sesame Street?
Vivian's watched this DVD several times since we received it. I can hear her laughing from the other end of the house while she watched and she's been sure to fill me in on everything that Cookie Monster got up to in the show.  This is a cute DVD for kids and a great way to reinforce lessons about good manners!
