Lots To Learn, a Long Island based preschool video production company, has just received additional kudos for the first in it's new educational series, titled "Lots To Learn: Nature' from two prestigious organizations.

The thirty-minute video recently received a Platinum "Best of Show' Aurora Award, the highest award given by the organization. The Aurora Awards is an international competition designed to recognize excellence in the film and video industries from across the United States and abroad, and the Platinum Best of Show is it's highest honor.

"Lots To Learn' also received The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval from the organization that identifies the finest products and services marketed to the parent/child audience. This consumer oriented testing process solicits evaluations from parents and their children, and the award signifies to other parents that their peers have acknowledged a product's quality and desirability based on a wide variety of determining factors.

"The addition of these two prestigious awards for "Lots To Learn:Nature' makes us extremely proud,' says the series Producer, Bill Cusick. "The recognition follows closely behind our National Telly Award and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval. Combined with the positive feedback we're getting from parents and their children makes for an unbelievably fulfilling experience for us, as parents and as producers of high quality preschool videos.'

Lots To Learn was carefully crafted to give pre-schoolers and their families a fun and entertaining way to learn about nature together. Through captivating visuals, imaginative live-action video, and interactive animations, the video creatively provides pre-schoolers with a solid educational foundation. "We teach the alphabet, counting, shapes, colors, sounds, memorization skills, exercise and more…all in one video. Our goal is to not only entertain, but to educate your children. That's what matters to us most. When we hear back from viewers that our video has made a difference in the education of their kids…that's what makes the Lots To Learn video stand above the others.'

Available on DVD and VHS, Lots To Learn also includes fun and energetic original soundtrack titled "Dance-along, Sing-along Songs.' "Music has always been extremely important to us, and we saw that virtually every other children's video took the standard, classical music approach,' said Mr. Cusick. "It's often hard to tell those videos apart. Our music is fun and danceable, and the lyrics are fun to sing-along with. The music contains a wide variety of styles that even parents will enjoy, with elements of Jazz, Reggae, Pop, and Rock. The kids can't get enough of it'

"We're looking forward to continuing with additional high-quality productions that can be enjoyed by both children and their parents. And we plan on having our next video, ‘Lots To Learn: In My House' ready in time for the holidays."

Lots To Learn is available at LotsToLearn.com, and can also be found on the ecommerce sites of Target, Amazon, VirginMega, WaldenBooks, Borders and CDNow, as well as throughout several regional children's specialty stores.

The producers of Lots To Learn have been creating award-winning programming for nearly twenty years, and are scheduled to complete production on "Lots To Learn: In My House " by November 2004.
