National Hispanic Heritage Month started on September 15th and ends on October 15th. I love how in those 30 days all across the United States everyone recognizes contributions from Latino and Latina Americans and celebrates them with parades, educational and social events.
Eddy and I are extremely proud of our cultures. I even call our sons Para-Ricans (Half Paraguayan like Mami, half Puerto Rican like Daddy and ALL mischief.)
We love Curious George and thanks to the Latina Bloggers Connect were able to see a prescreening of the upcoming episodes of the sixth season.
We love George! Rock loves the trouble he gets into and Mami loves how he encourages preschoolers to use math and science to get out of trouble and we are not alone.
PBS KIDS’ literacy and science curriculum-based series continue to impress moms and kids. Four PBS KIDS series – SUPER WHY, CURIOUS GEORGE, THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! and DINOSAUR TRAIN landed in the top-10 kids programs among kids 2-5 in July. Moms also continue to give PBS KIDS their vote of confidence. PBS KIDS was #1 in July with moms ages 18-49 with children under the age of 3, as PBS KIDS programs held the top six spots among their most-watched children’s series.
PBS’ heightened focus on STEM education – science, technology, engineering and math – is also proving to resonate with viewers. PBS KIDS science-focused series CURIOUS GEORGE,THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! and DINOSAUR TRAIN ranked third, fifth, and sixth among 2-5-year-olds, respectively.
BRAVO PBS Kids and Curious George! You make TV time learning time!
