Dove Review

Nothing teaches children better than fun! Real-life host Marie, radiating a sparkling smile and laughing eyes, teams up with Whistlefritz, the animated mouse, and invites children to learn French by immersing them in a program of joyful, colorful play. Repetition is the key to learning, and this engaging program is strategically structured using different and fun learning methods to repeat the material in new and amusing ways. Non-animated children friends combine with animated characters, puppets, music, dance and of course our funny-faced friend Fritzi, to encourage children to actively participate. French words are clearly spelled next to uncluttered pictures, supporting word and spelling understanding.

Six entertaining immersion programs teach children French as Marie and Fritzi encourage them to laugh, sing and dance. Dedans et Dehors (Inside and Out), On Va Jouer (Let’s Play), Les Saisons (The Seasons), and L’anniversaire de Fritzi (Fritzi’s Birthday) are four immersion videos engaging children in interactive learning. Allons Danser! (Let’s Dance) and Cha, Cha, Cha (Cha, Cha, Cha) are two music and song CDs that get children leaping and learning. Whether it’s seeing friends at the playground, hunting for the mischievous Fritzi, or laughing with Marie, children will love learning French this way! Whistlefritz should be applauded and earns the Dove All-Ages Seal.
