Rock N Learn Money & Making Change review & giveaway 8/12 ***CLOSED!!!***

***CLOSED!!!***



This is another review for you, brought to you by  Rock n Learn!

Giana has become a fast fan of this addictive series of educational videos.
I have become a fast fan of their PR (Cindy)!


This time we got another subject that Giana is ready to start learning - Money & Making Change.


I am a huge fan of Rock N Learn, not only because of all the videos they have sent out, but because of the quality of them, and the time that must be invested in them. They are engaging bright and vivid works of cartoon art.
 I can tell Giana really liked them and they are super catchy. If the DVDs before this one are any clue as to what to expect out of this one, Rock N Learn does not disappoint.


 I don't have to ask her to watch these, she jumps right in and rips them open ... before I can stop her.


The DVD's include kid friendly songs, likable characters, games, and special features. Penny & Bill are very cute, and it was almost like I could see the gears in Gigi's head clicking and turning as she watched it. She really gets it!

Now she is like, "Look Momma,I have a quarter!" ...
Instead of before,  "Hey Momma, which one is this one?"


What Giana thought: (In her own words..)
" I thought that making money was kinda fun! I like the word  Penny because girls can be called that- and the penny was a girl.. you get it it? Cute, huh? I liked Bill because you don't very often see dollars walking and talking. Well I kinda liked doing by 10s.  Guess what? In the movie Bill said, " That penny looks just like you Penny!" You get it? Aha! That's so silly. I learned about mostly how there are presidents on all the money. Did you know that Momma? There are even  girl presidents on the money."
  (Me) ... "Ummm, GiGi.. There were never any girl presidents?"
(GiGi) She laugh/cries when frustrated and doesn't know how to word things.. she is doing that now .. I am typing as she is talking  ( she is correcting my typos .. as usual!  Now she is laughing..)
"Yes, Momma.. there are coins with girls on them!"
(Me) {coming out of my air-head moment..}
"Ooohhh! You mean  like the coin with Susan B Anthony on it?"
"Yes!" (Laugh/crying with relief)
(Me) "Is there anything else you want to tell the little kids about this video?"
"No, that's pretty much it- except that I really liked it!"


Haha. From the mouths of babes.
 :)

Penny and Bill have a problem. With their big concert to play, they must repair a broken speaker. Fortunately, Penny has been saving money in her piggy bank. But just how much does she have?
Penny and Bill learn how to recognize coins, a little about the history of money, why coins and bills are starting to look different, and much more. They learn strategies for sorting coins and cash and use "skip counting" to find out exactly how much money they have.
After lots of counting money, Penny and Bill learn how to make change by pretending to buy funny items at a garage sale. You'll have time to practice counting money and making change right along with them before you hear the answers. Finally, at the big concert that evening, guess who's invited to join Penny, Bill on the front row?
