Dinosaur Train Celebrates Trains In May

 

CONTEST OVER! CONGRATS TO

Kele #20!!

 

 

Choo Choo!! Dinosaur Train is celebrating trains throughout the month of May and you can too! They are celebrating the month of May with special programming and activities all month long!

To kick off, the award-winning and critically acclaimed animated preschool series from The Jim Henson Company, will debut an all new episode on May 6 on PBS KIDS (please check local listings). Additionally, special train-themed activities and events will be featured in partnership with local PBS stations and on the series’ website.

National Train Day takes place on May 7th, Dinosaur Train has 2 new episodes that are 11 minutes long and my kids LOVED them. I received this to watch with my kids and it was two great segments. There is animated and live-action sequences featuring a paleontologist who brings to life the show’s natural science and natural history curriculum for preschoolers.

And, in “Junior Conductor Jamboree,” Buddy and his family ride the Dinosaur Train from one end of the line to the other and visit all three time periods–from the Cretaceous, through the Jurassic, to the Triassic. In “Troodon Train Day,” the Pteranodon family rides to Troodon Town to celebrate Troodon Train Day, where the main event is a concert by King Cryolophosaurus, giving his first performance in years!

Very entertaining and perfectly timed, so the kids don’t get too bored with long, drawn out episodes. My son loves dinosaurs and trains, so this was a great show for  him!

To top it off, select PBS stations, across the US, will be hosting train-themed events throughout the month of May. Participating stations include PBS SoCal, Los Angeles; WXXI, Rochester, New York; WJCT, Jacksonville, Florida; Houston PBS; KERA, Dallas, Texas; UNCTV, North Carolina state network; WHYY, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; AETN, Arkansas Educational Television Network; Vegas PBS, Las Vegas, Nevada; and WOSU, Columbus, Ohio.

There is also a fun and interactive website called “Dinosaur Train” and  you can find that by visiting http://pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain/. Your kids can join  Buddy, Tiny and all their friends as they discover natural history and the science of paleontology through fun games and activities!
