Sometimes I think that if we were only allowed one television station, I would choose PBS: great kids shows, Downton Abbey, documentaries, and news. This week PBS provides another great reason to love them — you’ll want to mark your calendars!
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday this Friday, March 2, The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That! will be played back-to-back in a two hour marathon, including 2 new episodes designed to reinforce core science concepts with the imaginative flair signature to Seuss.
The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That! has consistently ranked in the top ten of programs for 2-5 year olds, and we can see why. Our family was privileged to have been able to pre-screen the new shows, “Seasons–Spring and Summer/Fall and Winter” and “When I Grow Up/Doing It Differently,” and our kids were predictably entranced.
In addition to the TV marathon, children will have the special opportunity to connect with the Cat and with friends online through games and videos; parents, meanwhile will be able to pilot the new Birthday Party Builder Tool on the PBS KIDS Shop website. Video clips will also be available for free download at PBSkids.org.
Tune in or set up your DVR to record the March 2 marathon, and take advantage of the wonderful tools available online for parents and kids. Science will be an adventure!
