Several have expressed interest in finding this Arthur episode where Binky's family adopts from China on DVD, so I thought I'd try to track down some online sources.
BeachAudio.com -- $8.99
Overstock.com -- $10.43
ToysRUs.com -- $10.99
Amazon.com -- $11.49
ShopPBS.org -- $12.99
You can also rent it on NetFlix.
I'm glad so many people are interested in the DVD, but I think part of what my girls thought was so cool was that they saw it on "regular TV!" Amazing how powerful it is to see their story mainstreamed. Your local PBS station website should be able to give the schedule.
BTW, I can't vouch for any of the sources I've listed above (I've bought from Overstock, Amazon & PBS before with good success, but don't know about the others). And check out the shipping, not just the price of the DVD!
Wendy asks how xie-xie should be pronounced, if shay-shay is wrong. Well, I'm certainly not an expert, but the key, I think, is to see each "shay" as a two-syllable word. Each of the two syllables are said fast together, like "she-ey she-ey."
Anyone have a better explanation of how to say it?
