There are DVDs my daughter watches because I’m just too exhausted to fight her. Then there are the movies I sit and watch with her, then let her watch again – and actually admit it.
When I heard Liberty’s Kids was hitting the DVD rack, I slipped it right on the Christmas list. The PBS show follows a path straight through the American Revolution in an animated kid series that puts kids in the center of the action. Voiced by the likes of the most trusted man in America (the one and only Walter Cronkite), Billy Crystal, Ben Stiller, the Governator Schwarzenegger and more, the episodes are well written, well acted and well drawn.
They’re proof that educational kids TV doesn’t have put us to sleep. They caught my eye in reruns a few years ago when I was pregnant and more-or-less housebound, and now they’re back, in a full series DVD set to hit shelves on Tuesday, the 14th, courtesy of SHOUT Factory.
And lucky for Inside Out readers, SHOUT Factory has sent me two copies of the Liberty’s Kids series on DVD, worth $45 each, to give away!
