There is animal fun for everyone on “Elmo’s World: Penguins and Animal Friends,” the next compilation in the highly successful “Elmo’s World” series of DVDs. Watch this entertaining and educational DVD as Elmo learns about how his animal friends live in different environments. Elmo loves horses and he hears straight from a horse’s mouth about what it’s like to live like a horse. Elmo also hops around as he finds out fun and fascinating facts about frogs, like how they grow and what they eat. The excitement continues in the cold when Elmo bundles up and chills out with a bunch of his penguin friends.

Children will be excited to learn about animals and their different characteristics. The educational focus of the DVD shows how animals move, what and how they eat, and their habitats. The live action films show children making observations using their senses (sight and touch), and how positive interactions with animals affects children’s self-confidence. Unfamiliar words, such as camouflage and foal are presented in multiple meaningful contexts. Basic counting is also addressed in each “Elmo’s World” as well as encouraging children to use their imaginations to pretend to move like different animals.

“Warner Home Video is thrilled to continue the awesome adventures with Elmo with the release of ‘Elmo’s World: Penguins and Animal Friends’” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President, of Family, Animation & Partner Brands Marketing. “Parents and preschoolers will love learning about many different animals with their favorite red furry friend.”
