Barney Wiki

Read With Me, Dance With Me is a Barney Home Video that was released on April 8, 2003.


Read With Me!

The kids are holding a book drive to collect more books for the caboose's library. But, because Baby Bop can't read yet, she can't learn any of the stories. However, with a little help from Barney and the kids, they act out the stories for Baby Bop. They even decide to make their own books!

Dance With Me!

Barney's old friend, Min, visits the park and both of them help BJ realize that all kinds of dancing are fun!

  • This video marked:
    • "Read with Me!": The first time Kami is seen with short hair.
    • "Dance With Me!": The final appearance of Min.
    • "Dance With Me!": One of the rarest times BJ calls Baby Bop by name. In this episode, "Dance with Me!", After BJ tells Barney, Baby Bop, and the children not to laugh, he comes out wearing a Ballet tutu. And after Barney says that BJ is wearing a Ballet tutu, he says, "Yeah! Baby Bop says Ballet dancers wear pretty tutus!".
  • This episode, "Dance With Me!", was featured in "Dance with Barney".
  • This home video has a unique effect that is never used in Barney episodes and other Barney home videos. After "Read With Me!", the screen fades to black and a smooth trumpet sound effect is heard. That is when the "Dance With Me!" title card pops up, and the ending instrumental part of the Barney theme song plays before the said episode starts.
  • In the music video of "The Dino Dance", Dean Wendt re-dubbed Barney's voice.
  • None of the cast or crew from "Come on Over to Barney's House" was credited, despite a clip being used at the very end, as previously stated.
  • After not being used for six years, the song, "Happy Dancin'", is sung for the first time since "Barney's Adventure Bus".
  • The alternate title for "Read with Me!" is "All Booked Up!", while the alternate title for "Dance with Me!" is "Happy Dancin' Feet!".
  • Production for both "Read With Me!" and "Dance With Me!" took place in 2002 after a few episodes from Season 8 were made during that same year.
