The hit series follows the Thornberry family as they travel the world in their Communications Vehicle (or CommVee) looking for rare animals to film.After an encounter with an African shaman, their youngest child Eliza was given the power to speak to animals! Every episode in this adventure-packed DVD set follows Eliza as she comes face-to-face with an assortment of animals, continents and danger. Encounter wildlife in all its natural glory and eavesdrop on Eliza’s conversations with silverback gorillas, pythons, crested grebes, tapirs, capybaras, antelopes and opossums while the CommVee travels on!
Evan definitely judges a book by its cover and was hesitant about watching this movie after looking at the DVD case. I assured him that it was a good show and that mommy watched it when she was little. I was more than thrilled when he sat without moving for the first episode and then declared, "I like this show!" when it went off. Like me, his favorite character is Darwin.
This is actually a 4 disc set that includes the whole first season with about 7 1/2 hours of run time! We obviously haven't watched it all yet, and I'm so glad that my kids enjoy the show so that I can watch it with them.
This was not a paid post and honest opinions were used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others. Thank you to the company and/or pr agency who supplied the DVD for review.
