1996 Awards
Cleared For Takeoff
(Fred Levine Productions $14.95 Score:) Fasten your seatbelt and get ready for a fast-paced look at commercial aviation that follows a mother and three kids on a trip from start to finish. Interesting information and film footage takes kids behind the scenes at the airport. From the maker of the granddaddy of construction videos, Road and House Construction Ahead. 2 1/2 & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 1996.

1994 Awards
Doing Things
(Bo Peep Productions $14.95 Score:) Every video library should have Doing Things! With almost no talking or cutesy narrative, we watch kids and familiar barnyard animals go through the routines of the day-eating, washing, and playing. There's something new to see each time you watch. The cast of kids is multiethnic and the music is fun but not too intrusive. Doing Things leaves the talking to you and your kids. 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 1994.

2001 Awards
Video Soup Mozart Nature Symphonies
(em-bry-on-ics $14.95 Score:) Disregard the "12 month & up" label. There's much to speak about as the sound track plays real, nonsynthesized Mozart that is perfectly in sync with breathtaking film clips of wildlife underwater, in the sky, from the North Pole to the South, and all points in between! Watch it together or play the music for its own sake. Trust us-it's a winner! 2 & up, up, up!

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2001.

2005 Award
Elmos World: Families, Mail & Bath Time!
(SonyWonder $9.98 Score:) Elmo, Mr. Noodle, and the rest of his gang give information about how different families can look, how to mail a letter, and how to take a bath. High marks for inclusion of multicultural families and children with special needs. We question why the mailbox needed to fly for "air mail" delivery. As cloying as Mr. Noodle may be to adult viewers, he has big-time appeal with kids. Also recommended, last year's Wake Up With Elmo with tips on sleep, getting dressed, and taking care of their teeth. Live-action film of a first visit to the dentist is especially useful. 2 & up.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2005.
