I’m so excited to share with you that Bookaboo, the rockin’ new Amazon Original Kids Series, “takes to the stage” on Prime Video Friday, October 28! How many of you have heard about this show? If you haven’t heard about it yet, I think you may be interested in seeing this, especially if you have children. My kids loved this show! I personally thought it was such a cute show, and it had so much music in. If you have kids that love to sing, dance, play music, then they’ll probably enjoy this as much as my kids did.

I actually had the opportunity to host a Bookaboo screening party at home. I knew this was going to give me the chance to share more about this show with everyone. I have two daughters, and they have a lot of cousins. We invited some of them over for a chance to have a party with my daughters. They all love to play together, so this was a perfect way to get everyone together and learn more about Bookaboo.

We received and awesome package of toy instruments for all the kids to play with while they watched Bookaboo. My girls were so excited to use these instruments and watch the show once it had arrived. I had to tell them we needed to wait so that we could all share this with their cousins for a party. Once they heard that, they were even more excited.

All the kids were so excited for this party. They were running around the house pretending that they were in a band. It was so cute! Everyone had something to play, and they just loved it. I was happy just to see how happy and excited they were.

Bookaboo is an exciting show developed to promote literacy by inspiring parents to read to and with their children and help instill a lifelong love of reading,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “Each episode incorporates funny storytelling and great books, specifically chosen to capture young viewers’ attention and imagination.

The rocking series follows Bookaboo as he tours the globe with his bandmates Paws and Growler, playing drums to packed stadiums of adoring fans. There’s only one hitch – Bookaboo just can’t play without a story a day! The precocious pup finds creative ways to avoid performing, leading to laugh-out-loud comedy sketches and silly songs. To empower Bookaboo to return to the stage, a famous face appears in each episode to share a favorite story. The picture book that the celebrity guest brings in the special “bookabag” is brought to vibrant life through animation and an interactive, energetic reading that restores Bookaboo’s “bojo.”

I let my daughters play with the instruments and watch some of BookaBoo before they had their cousins over. They were having such a fun time, but even better once all their cousins arrived. It was so much fun being able to watch them all play together nicely and see them having such a great time. There is nothing better than seeing your kids so happy!

Our screening party was a huge success! Everyone had so much fun playing instruments along with watching Bookaboo. It really was a great show for kids to watch. They really get them up and moving with this. I hope that you all will be waiting to watch this show as well. Amazon Launches Original Kids Series Bookaboo on October 28 on Prime Video in the US and UK, so I’ll hope you’ll be there to watch it with your kids too!

This is already a full-fledged international hit. Bookaboo is a series for preschool-aged children that celebrates the fun and benefits of adults and children reading together. Bookaboo inventively combines puppetry, live action and CGI animation, and every episode features a different celebrity guest, who goes “backstage” to share their favorite picture book with Bookaboo, the adorable world-famous drummer puppy and star of the show who needs to be read a book a day or he just can’t play. Among the series special guests are Paula Abdul (American Idol), Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight), Molly Parker (House of Cards), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Emily Van Camp (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Selma Blair (Legally Blonde), Michael Sheen (The Queen), Guillermo Diaz (Scandal), WWE Wrestler Adam Copeland, NASA Astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield, and NFL player Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bookaboo, the latest addition to Amazon’s award-winning preschool programming slate, is created by Lucy Goodman, Founder of Happy Films, and produced by Happy Films and Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad, Annedroids).

I hope that you’ll all be watching it on Friday the 28th! I’d love to hear about what you think of the show. Make sure to check out the video I have posted above to learn a bit more about the show! I hope you enjoy the video and hopefully you’ll be watching it with your children very soon too!
