2002 Award
Be a Hula Girl
(Kuleana Productions $14.95 Score:) We were testing a luau craft kit when this wonderful dancing video arrived from Hawaii. Our 8-year-old testers followed every motion and learned how to dance and move to the traditional music. We liked how the instructor kept reminding them to smile! You can buy the video alone, or with a raffia skirt and beads ($24.95). This would be fun to use for a luau party.

Families of the World Series
(Master Communications $19.95 Score:) Narrated by a child from the featured country, these are low on energy but high on information about the food, work, school, and customs, told from a child's point of view.

Earlier videos cover, among other places, China, Thailand, Mexico, India, and this year, Korea and Israel. 30 minutes.
