Baba Yaga and the Magic Geese

Baba Yaga and the Magic Geese (Davidson & Associates – ages 3-9) has much to recommend it. First, it presents characters that aren’t pushing cereal, don’t appear on television, and won’t show up at Toys ‘R’ Us as overpriced action figures. The emphasis here is on traditional storytelling with an artistic flair. Second, its a nice story. Based on a Russian folk tale, it presents a moral lesson about responsibility when Tasha, charged with keeping an eye on her little brother Nicky, lets her attention (and Nicky) wander off. Snatched up by magic geese, Nicky is transported to the deep-woods realm of nasty Baba Yaga, from where Tasha must eventually rescue him. Third, the visuals and music are lovely, and the clever dialogue is several notches above the typical storybook. All in all, a pleasing disc that lets kids stretch their imagination and enjoy a nice story.

– December 1995
