I remember when I was young there was always a great movie or cartoon on with my favorite characters for every holiday.
There are some that are famous now and play every year on TV, and those are movies and shows that we all know and love.
I have reviewed three of these great DVD’s that are new from PBS Kids.
Daniel Tiger is a favorite around here and whenever I have all of the kids we watch all of the episodes we can find. The kids loved learning about Love Day and finding out what it was all about! Daniel Tiger has done it again with this awesome title for Valentine’s everywhere!
WOULD YOU BE MINE?” features eight stories including “It’s Love Day!” and “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise.” In “It’s Love Day,” Daniel makes special heart cards to bring to school and hand out. While at school, some of the kids explain how they like to say “I love you” to their friends and family – Prince Wednesday likes to sing, and Miss Elaina likes to give hugs. In the story “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise,” Daniel helps his mom make a special heart-shaped pizza and finds a way to show Grandpere how much he loves him by setting up a special treasure hunt just for him featuring sparkling purple hearts. The SRP for this DVD is $12.99.
Learning how to read and finding sight words have never been more fun then they are on WordWorld! This is one of Destini’s favorite shows. Being in transitional kindergarten has really perked her interest in this show!
This DVD includes five stories, two of which are Valentine’s Day themed. “My Fuzzy Valentine” features Sheep working to create a valentine song for her best friend Bear. Unfortunately, she has trouble finding just the right rhyme to finish her song. With help from Fly, she uncovers the perfect rhyme and makes Bear a valentine with real heart. In “Love, Bug,” Bug wants to sign a valentine for his favorite WordFriend but doesn’t know how to write his name. With lots of encouragement from Frog, he learns that with a little practice he can write his name and give his valentine. The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
Oh I love this Dinosaur movie! My grandson really seems to be able to follow and love this show! It’s always a good time when he laughs and has a good time.
Two of the four stories included on this DVD are “King Meets Crystal” and “Erma and the Conductor.” In “King Meets Crystal,” King Cryolophosaurus is interested in meeting Crystal, but he’s nervous to talk to her. Can Mr. Conductor, Mrs. Pteranodon, Buddy, and Tiny help King overcome his nervousness? In “Erma and the Conductor,” the Pteranodon family is on the Dinosaur Train headed to the Big Pond to watch a meteor shower! Mr. Conductor stops to pick up Erma Eoraptor. At the Big Pond, the Conductor and Erma are interrupted a few times while trying to be alone but soon find the perfect spot back on the Train. The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
PBS has done it again, teaching great lessons and having great content that kids love! I continue to be a great fan of these shows. You can find these titles at Amazon and also on the PBSKids website.
