Gr 1–4In this PBS series, brothers Martin and Chris Kratt explore natural habitats of animals all over the world while focusing on the incredible "creature powers" of a variety of wildlife. Besides being educational, each segment also has a villain or some situation that the Kratts and their helpers must try to defeat or solve. After a live-action portion, each episode transitions into animation when Martin and Chris ask a "What if?" question, which leads to adventure. In "The Gecko Effect" episode, audiences will learn about the intricacies of the lizard's amazing feet. On a trip to the Everglades in "Crocogator Contest," the gang wonder about the differences between crocodiles and alligators, and this quickly turns into a contest to see who can discover the most facts. With lots of kid appeal, this DVD will encourage viewers to take a closer look at their environment and the creatures that live there and to find ways to make a positive impact on their own habitat as well.
VERDICT A surefire selection for public libraries.
