How many of you have kids that watch shows on PBS Kids? My girls love to watch this channel. One thing I love about the channel, is that it’s very educational. This is one of the best educational channels for kids. I think they can learn a lot while having fun watching shows on PBS Kids as well.
Have your kids ever seen the show called Dinosaur Train? This is a great show about dinosaurs. If your kids love dinosaurs and they haven’t seen this show yet, I’d highly recommend letting them see it. It’s such a cute show that lets kids have fun while watching it and still learn from it.
I recently received the Dinosaur Train Under the Volcano DVD to review. This comes with the following episodes:
“Under the Volcano”
Buddy, Tiny, and Dad take the Dinosaur Train to see Old Smoky, the local volcano. It’s such a spectacular sight that they go back for the rest of the family, only to discover they’ve already gone to see the volcano! The merry mix-up concludes as the whole family meets up just in time to catch Old Smoky erupting.
Mr. Pteranodon and Mr. Lambeosaurus take all the kids to see a field of geysers – holes in the ground that hot water shoots out from! At the same time, Mrs. Pteranodon and Mrs. Lambeosaurus are relaxing nearby in soothing pools of warm water, called hot springs. In the end, the kids love seeing the geysers and then joining the Moms in their hot springs, while accidentally surprising Mr. Conductor who is secretly trying to relax in his own private hot spring pool!
Mrs. Pteranodon cleans out the clutter from the family nest and the kids are amazed at the pile of stuff – leaves, flower petals, pieces of wood, and shells. Tiny stops Mom from throwing out all the stuff, determined that she and Buddy, Shiny, and Don will find a use for it all. And, they do – the Pteranodon kids have fun making nature art on the beach using the items from the nest!
“The Big Mud Pit”
There’s big trouble at the Big Pond when Larry Lambeosaurus gets stuck in a mud pit, and then Dad tries to get Larry out, and ends up getting stuck himself. Buddy and Leroy Lambeosaurus have to think quickly to pull their dads out before some big meat-eater finds them!
“Derek the Deinonychus”
Buddy, Tiny, and Mom visit a family of Deinonychus dinosaurs with large, sharp toe-claws. They meet a kid named Derek who uses his toe-claws to not only hunt with but to carve great art!
“Triceratops for Lunch”
Our Pteranodon family eats lunch with their friend Tank Triceratops and discovers that he and his family are all plant-eaters, with great leaf-eating teeth and giant appetites!
“The Forest Fire”
When a forest fire comes to woods not far from the family nest at Pteranodon Terrace, the family takes the Dinosaur Train to visit a nearby area where a fire has already been. The Conductor leads the kids on a Nature Tracker hike through the woods to see how new life is growing back – even after the forest fire’s devastation.
Dad takes the Pteranodon kids on an overnight camping trip where they watch both a sunrise and sunset, learning that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The kids also find out more about nocturnal (night-active) animals, and diurnal (day-active) animals.
You can join Buddy and his friends in this movie and watch the mighty volcano, Old Smoky, erupt! This was a great episode for learning about volcanoes. Your kids will learn all about the lava and geysers. All of these episodes are wonderful and will help teach your kids about so much! A lot of these episodes are dealt with nature and everything that surrounds you. There are so many things kids will learn from this movie, so I hope you’ll be able to check this one out!
This movie will be released on July 12th, so make sure to check it out when it’s released! We certainly loved this show and still will continue to watch it. I watch kids sometimes as well, and this is a favorite show for them all!
