Which format is better… audio CD & Book or DVD video?

Some of our programs come in both a DVD format and a CD/book format. Which one is better often depends on the student. Some people learn better by listening, others by watching and listening.

Why are some titles available only on DVD or only on audio CD & book?

Some of our programs work best by being on one format. For example, learning states and capitals does not seem to benefit that much from a video. In contrast, Telling Time would be difficult to present without an animated video. Check our site frequently to see what new titles we have added.

Can I purchase just the book or addtional books?

You may purchase replacement books or extra books for $3 each. To order, please go to that title and click "replacement book."

How long will it take to receive my order?

We typically process orders within 24 business hours. Expect to receive your order within 5 to 7 business days unless you specify expedited shipping (extra charge).

What is the difference between the rap and rock programs?

The difference between rap and rock programs is primarily the musical style. We suggest you listen to samples provided on each product page to help you determine which style would be most appropriate for your child.

Do you provide gift messages?

Yes. In the comments section of the order form, just let us know the occasion and the message you would like us to include.

Do you accept international orders?

No, sorry. We no longer ship international orders. Please see our Find a Store to locate international distributors.

Can your DVDs be played by a computer or CD player?

Our DVD videos can be played on a computer with a DVD drive. They cannot be played in a CD player.

What program should I use first for reading?

We suggest starting with Alphabet, then Sight Words and Letter Sounds and finally Phonics. If your child already knows the alphabet, you can start with Letter Sounds. Other useful programs to boost reading skills include our Sight Words DVDs.

Are your programs interactive?

Our programs are audio CD or DVD video – not interactive CD ROMs. The style of our programs, however, engages learners to participate along with the program. All of our DVDs have menus to access specific segments and bonus materials.

What age level are your products?

Each title has a recommended age or grade level as a general guide. Many children younger than the specified age benefit from Rock 'N Learn programs. Likewise, older students may find our programs address their needs. We receive "success stories" from parents and teachers working with students of all ages.
