Fun on the Farm Plows Onto DVD February 8, 2011 from TM Books & Video
Michigan City, IN (October 14, 2010) – TM’s new Fun on the Farm takes you on a fascinating trip where you learn how farmers grow their crops, what kinds of animals live on a farm, and where the food in the produce aisle comes from. This latest DVD from TM Books & Video will arrive in stores on February 8, 2011.
The 30-minute Fun on the Farm is an engaging foray into the growing cycle. It starts in the spring with planting, then the fields are cultivated, and finally, in the fall, when the leaves change to beautiful shades of red and gold, the farmers harvest their crops using a combine.
Host Doodle Rooster and his friends Bell Cow and Harvey Horse take turns introducing young viewers to the marvels of big farm machines all set to a delightful soundtrack of singer/songwriter James Coffey.
Take a trip to the “Farm in the Zoo,” a big attraction at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo that teaches city kids about farm life. Then travel to the John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline, IL to see how John Deere makes their combines. Learn about tractors, cultivators, combines, plows, balers and more. Take a laugh-filled trip to the Wacky Farm and lend a hand and work the land as you explore the many chores kids do on a farm.
Along with games like “Name the Letter” and “The Cloud Game” (finding clouds that look like animals), your little farming enthusiasts are sure to cultivate new seeds of knowledge and have a great time exploring the many facets of life on the farm.
Fun on the Farm is recommended for ages two to five and will be available for a suggested retail price of $14.99. To order, call toll free 1-800-892-2822 or visit www.tmbv.com.
