Baby Shakespeare - World of Poetry

Synopsis
Educational video aimed at ages 1 to 4. Combines poetry with classical music, bright objects and happy thoughts designed to stimulate babies and young children and expose them to language.Twelve words (grass, tree, etc.) are explored in pictures and poems, with stops for children singing their ABCs, and close-ups of brightly coloured toys. Baby Einstein meets a dragon puppet named Bard, who (along with his friends) playfully participates in the action. To accompany the puppet shows and images, Agnier-Clark recites a short, classic poem about each featured word. Only one of the selections is from Shakespeare; the others are from Frost, Wordsworth, Yeats, Nash, and Hughes.
