You may stop the DVD for as long as needed or take additional breaks by pausing the video.

"My six-year-old daughter loves exercise videos. If given free access to DVDs that guide her through structured physical activity, she faithfully completes this disc on a daily basis, dragging as many of her younger siblings along as she can round up. When I discovered Alphabet Exercise I knew we had to try it. Though my oldest is outside of the recommended age range, the reinforcement provided by this DVD is just what she needs. We're able to kill three birds with one stone – provide an outlet for physical activity, reinforce letter names, and help her learn proper printing technique. With my three-year-old starting to count and learn the ABC song I have great hopes that this fun-filled disc will help her along in her journey towards letter recognition. Educators working with young children should certainly put Alphabet Exercise on their short list of products to look into further." - Jennifer at Quiverfullfamily.com
"I love it when a video encourages children to get up off of the couch. I loved the fact that a child can learn about the alphabet AND get exercise at the same time." - former kindergarten teacher and author of Multi-TestingMommy.blogspot.com
"This is a great way to get kids moving! My daughter is three years old and the DVD really held her attention. We loved this DVD - especially because both parent and child can exercise together." - reviews from Mom's Best Award
"I gave Emily, my 3-year-old granddaughter, this DVD from Rock 'N Learn that teaches the ABCs while doing fun exercises to song. She loved moving around, following the exercises with Alphabet Al. Her mom, Lori, teaches 3 1/2 - 4 year olds. She took the Alphabet Exercise to school to play it for her pre-school class since they couldn't go out to play - they had over 10 inches of snow the day before! The whole class was up and moving by 'picking cherries' and more fun movements while learning the alphabet, beginning sounds, and new vocabulary. Lori and the other teachers liked it because they didn't need anything but the video for the kids to have a good time during their exercise time indoors. Lori stated, "Awesome! They loved it! At the end, it still had 90% of the kids' attention. They wanted more!" That's saying a lot for children of that young age!" - Nanascorner.com
"This is such a fun video! My 4-year-old loves exercising along with the DVD and he knows all of his letters. I like it because he is active while watching TV and learning. Now, how cool is that?" – Karen T.
"I like this video because our school now requires that we get in more exercise during each part of the school day. This is a fun way to get my kindergartners to exercise. They love it!" – Joanna V., kindergarten teacher
Received DVD today--listening, singing and jumping all over the place!!!!! Thanks - The class at Ms. Wilson's
