- Lionsgate puts out some really cute educational children’s programs. Two of them are Clifford the Big Red Dog and LeapFrog, a family favorite. My kids love watching LeapFrog and I love watching them learn from watching it. Miles learned to recognize most of his letters that way. This July, Lionsgate released two new titles under these family friendly programs.
- Enjoy the summer breeze and warm sunshine with beloved Scholastic character, Clifford the Big Red Dog™, as Lionsgate Home Entertainment releases Clifford the Big Red Dog: Dog Days of Summer this July 19th 2011. Arriving just in time for summer, this all-new Clifford adventure includes five fun-filled episodes that have never been released to DVD, but are sure to become another classic collection. The title supports a larger effort to reach kids and families across the country with the Clifford BE BIG Campaign for civic engagement. Inspired by Clifford’s 10 Big Ideas (Share, Help Others, Be Kind, Be Responsible, Play Fair, Be a Good Friend, Believe in Yourself, Have Respect, Work Together and Be Truthful), the BE BIG campaign invites people of all ages to take positive action and make the world a better place. This DVD will focus on the Be Truthful theme of the campaign. In addition, the DVD contains the kid-friendly direct-play feature, allowing children to insert the DVD and watch without help from an adult. Clifford the Big Red Dog: Dog Days of Summer, which also includes six bonus Speckle Stories, will be available July 19, 2011, for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
Every summer day, Clifford™ sets out on fun-filled adventures with his friends and learns big lessons about friendship, loyalty, and other ways to BE BIG! In these five playful stories, Clifford discovers that one of the best ways to BE BIG is to always be truthful. From Emily Elizabeth teaching Clifford that it doesn’t help to hide things, to T-Bone learning to do the right thing, to Cleo learning a lesson when she plays tricks on her friends, cuddly Clifford leads neighbors and friends around Birdwell Island to learn how to BE BIG by always being kind to each other and being truthful!
