This episode shows that even though sometimes we may be reluctant to help out another person because it may not benefit us, or even sometimes put us in a bad situation, that in the end it really is the best thing to do. Definitely one of my favorite stories from the Let's Grow: Lend a Helping Hand DVD.
We also see in the episode "Mother's Helper", from the show Fireman Sam, the consequences of being too rushed when helping out. When Norman's mother asks him to do two loads of laundry he figures one will allow him to go play. unfortunately the washer breaks and Mike the Fix-it man comes to help, causing even more chaos because each of the "helpers" in the stories are rushing to the point where they don't think and cause dangerous situations. Luckily, Fireman Sam and the rest of the brigade are on the job. Sometimes we all need reminders that even though we're helping we still need to be safe!
In the last episode from Angelina Ballerina, "The Ballerina Ragdoll", we see that giving things to others can be a way to help out. Angelina donates one of her old rag dolls in an effort to help children in need out. Unfortunately, she thinks giving it away was a big mistake and tries to find the doll. After stumbling upon the already claimed doll, Angelina realizes that in giving up the toy she made another little girl happy.
Whether you're a fan of Sprout shows or not, this DVD has a quality message with fun shows to enhance learning. It's certainly a DVD that I could watch over and over again with my children. I think helping others is one of the most important lessons we can learn. I would definitely recommend Let's Grow: Lend a Helping Hand to anyone I know.
