Curious George Swings Into Spring On DVD March 12!

    Our boys are huge fans of Curious George and all of his crazy antics.  They were thrilled to find out that we would be reviewing the upcoming release of Curious George Swings Into Spring.  I was excited because I love the lessons that are taught to children through the Curious George series.     In this Curious George adventure, The Man With The Yellow Hat takes George to the park so he can enjoy all of the wonders of the spring season.  George is just thrilled that Spring has finally arrived and he wants his friends Hundley and the Doorman to share in his enthusiasm.  Unfortunately, they don't have time to enjoy the season because they are too busy preparing for the Mayor's spring cleaning prize.     A broken water pipe floods the building, Hundley is forced to stay with George out in the country and George seizes the opportunity to make his friend enjoy the spring season as well.  The bad part is that Hundley ends up not enjoying the country all that much, especially when he … [Read more...]

Dance Up A Storm With Curious George®!

    My six year old son loves to dance.  It's almost as if his body is unable to stay still when any kind of song is playing.  No matter what he is doing at the time, he will jump up and start swaying back and forth to the melody.  The entire family enjoys watching him go when we get together for the holidays!     His love of music and dance does not stop there.  My husband and I have extensive home video collections of him dancing in places like the barber shop, the grocery store, and even in the backseat of the car.  Lately, he even comes up with his own lyrics that he sings and dances to all day long.  We have no doubt that he will continue to love singing and dancing for the rest of his life.     Curious George® is celebrating the arts by hosting a dance contest for kids that is guaranteed to get them up and moving.  Let's be honest, everyone loves to dance.  Not only is it a great way to get great exercise, but it is also a way to express your individuality and show off some of … [Read more...]

Let Curious George® Help You Teach Your Children About the Arts!

      I recently received an advanced screening DVD of some of Curious George's® adventures as he takes on the Arts in an all new season premiering Labor Day, September 5, 2011 on PBS KIDS®.  Believe me, my boys were eagerly awaiting the package before it even arrived because they are long time fans of the Curious George® books by Margret and H.A. Rey.  Since they were very little, we have shared in reading these wonderful books together about a little monkey who is curious and inquisitive about the world around him just like many young children are.     These new series featuring Curious George® are designed to teach kids about science, math, and engineering all around them by presenting the topics in entertaining situations and episodes.  Each episode lasts one half hour and includes two animated stories featuring George and all of his new friends.  These episodes are then followed by short action pieces where real children are shown demonstrating the theories and ideas … [Read more...]
