This delightful video series teaches young children valuable lessons that will help them get along well, work out conflicts fairly and peacefully, and treat each other with respect. Funny, entertaining, and emotionally engaging, these videos combine puppetry, real children, music, and fanciful visual elements – a sure hit with young kids. Each video comes in both Spanish and English.
In each episode, Groark, an affable, childlike dragon, gets into a tense situation with some of his friends. After he discusses the problem with his adult companion (ventriloquist Randel McGee) and a group of real elementary school children, he applies what he has learned and succeeds in bringing about a peaceful, positive resolution.
Groark Learns to LISTEN
Groark is working on a dance routine for a talent show with two friends. His failure to listen to their ideas and concerns upsets his friends, causes misunderstandings, and eventually results in one of them being injured. When Groark is told to go away, he turns to a group of real children who help him understand how his poor listening habits caused such trouble and how he can become a better listener. Groark asks his friends for a second chance, and his greatly improved listening skills make everybody happy.
