Disclosure: I am PBS KIDS ambassador and received a PBS KIDS back-to-school kit. As always, my posts are based on my opinions and experiences.
It was only a few weeks ago that I hosted a Summer Reading PBS KIDS party and now it is already BACK-TO-SCHOOL! PBS KIDS wants your family to start the new academic year with educational tips, stylish gear and a brand new Curious George movie!
Check out my PBS KIDS Back-to-School Video.
That is right, PBS KIDS is premiering CURIOUS GEORGE 3: BACK TO THE JUNGLE, featuring the Voice Talents of Angela Bassett and John Goodman, and Music by the Plain White T’s on August 17 2015.
Curious George is back to his inquisitive ways with the television premiere of PBS KIDS’ CURIOUS GEORGE 3: BACK TO THE JUNGLE. In this adventure-filled feature-length movie, Curious George takes a trip to space but crash-lands in the jungles of Africa, leading to an unforgettable journey with new animal friends. Featuring the voice talents of Angela Bassett and John Goodman, with music by the Plain White T’s, BACK TO THE JUNGLE is a fun-filled journey that the whole family will enjoy.
So check your local listings so you do not miss the monkey fun.
Plus the back-to-school season would not be complete without must-have school gear. How about some shopping that helps kiddos with every purchase?
Did you like the lunchbox, pencil case and folders in the video?
PBS KIDS and Whole Foods Market have teamed up to offer a new line of back-to-school products, available exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores this July and August. From notebooks made from recycled paper to organic cotton backpacks and reusable lunch totes. One-hundred percent of PBS KIDS’ net proceeds from the line will support PBS KIDS educational programming, dedicated to helping all children succeed in school and in life, while Whole Foods Market will donate a percentage of total sales, up to $25,000, to Whole Kids Foundation™, an organization dedicated to improving children’s nutrition and wellness. In addition, for every Esperos backpack, pencil case and lunch tote purchased, Esperos will donate 10 percent of proceeds to help fund education for children in need through the Esperos Carry Hope™ initiative.
Thank you PBS KIDS for truly making #backtoschoolsmarter
