On July 13th, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment released “Nick Jr. Favorites: The First Day of School” on DVD.  I love that the DVD includes a variety of shows.  Watch as all of your favorite Nick Jr. characters help prepare for the first day of school, including “Dora the Explorer,” “Go, Diego, Go!,” “Blue’s Clues,” “The Wonder Pets!,” and “Ni hao Kai-lan.”  You can find the DVD online and in stores, retailing for $16.99.

Nickelodeon: First Day of School Synopses:

Dora the Explorer – First Day of School

Boots and Tico are really excited because it’s their first day of school and they’re going to learn in English and Spanish!  Dora leads the way, teaching Boots Spanish and Tico English as they head out to school.  At the river, their Guatemalan friend Camila shows them how to find turtles to ride across, then they go through the Forest where Swiper swipes Tico and Boots’ lunches and they have to find them.  
Go, Diego, Go! –“ Linda the Librarian”

Alicia is opening a new library on the mountain top.  Linda the Llama was supposed to bring the books for the library — but she’s late and it’s almost time to open the library.  Diego finds Linda the Llama and they set off for the library. But first they’ve got to go up and down the rocky mountains by saying “arriba/abajo,” then a big wind blows away the library books and it’s up to the viewer to find them.
Blue’s Clues – “Blue Takes You To School”

It’s Periwinkle’s first day at preschool, and everyone needs to help Periwinkle make it through his first day.  From finding his cubby and getting through circle time, to reading the job chart and understanding how to take turns and respect others, Periwinkle has a lot to learn. 
The Wonder Pets! – “Off to School / Save the Pangaroo”

·       Off to School– The Wonder Pets help our old friend the Baby Blowfish overcome her separation anxiety on her first day of Fish Preschool. 

·       Save the Pangaroo — The Wonder Pets help a kid-art Pangaroo, a fictional animal that is part kangaroo and part parrot, who has been thrown away in the trash.
Ni Hao, Kai-lan –“Lulu Day”

Today, Kai-lan is having a playdate with her best girl friend, Lulu the rhino.  Kai-lan has all sorts of games to play with Lulu, but Lulu wants to play with different things than Kai-lan.  Kai-lan and Lulu need the viewers’ help to figure out a way to compromise and play things that make them both happy.
