Picks and Pans Review: A Child's World
Though it sometimes seems like a cross between Candid Camera and Kids Say the Darndest Things, this entertaining if repetitious three-parter (narrated by Kelly Ripa) imparts plenty of solid information on the ways children develop a sense of themselves and society. A Child's World shows how kids learn to think abstractly, tell white lies to spare others' feelings, deal with situations where rules conflict, and see death as a fact of life. For a laugh, you also can spy on a 3-year-old trying to resist sampling a chocolate cake.
Bottom Line: Lively learning experience
