Cause and Effect
Brillant for reminding an adult what cause and effect is;and wonderful for teaching children the importance of study, and proper respect for the teacher. So very fun and well done!
Good & Bad
Decent content , video quality is decent. Audio dynamics are distracting, and general delivery is half baked. In dire need of a good producer to give it a once over. But it's free, so . . .
