PolyGram's Busy World Of Richard Scarry series gets busier with these two videos released in plenty of time to help young viewers get excited about going to school and making new friends. In the first tape, Sally Cat proves that apprehensions about the first day of kindergarten can melt into a truly memorable experience. The second offering finds Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm playing hosts to a new neighbor and disproving any preconceived notions. Each video features two additional episodes and two mini-musical safety lessons.
Bake My Day, License To Cook, Blackboard Entertainment, 30 minutes each, $12.95 each
Live-action personality, a chance to make real-life treats, and some solid education about food preparation and nutrition add up to a recipe for success in these additions to the "You Can" series. The kitchen, with its plentiful gadgets and potpourri of smells, is one of the most enticing areas in the house. Adult supervision is definitely a good idea for these two tapes, which provide children with the necessary mindset to make a pizza and specialty cake, respectively, using real kitchen accessories.
