Nutmeg Media’s growing library of over 100 children’s picture books on video expands again in 2012 with the addition of these four outstanding programs, new adaptations with valuable bonus features.
Chowder – Peter Brown
Chowder doesn’t quite fit in with the neighborhood dogs. He’d rather read the newspaper than fetch it, and he likes surfing the Internet and gazing through his telescope in his free time. When a petting zoo opens, Chowder decides to find some friends. Will he find a place to fit in? The first in the series by the remarkable author-illustrator, Peter Brown, Chowder has become a modern classic.
Delightfully narrated by the author! Includes a Conversation With the Author.
