Expert Review*:

This simple animated video is aimed towards very young students at the beginning of their drug education. The simplicity of the message, and use of repetition and song is appropriate for the intended audience. The content maps directly onto the Alcohol and other Drugs (AD) components of the Australian Health and Physical Education curriculum for Years K-2.
