My son loves Dinosaur Train on PBS kids and watches it often, especially since we don’t have cable and those are the cartoons he is use too. He also loves nature and so does his sister. I spend countless hours cleaning up mulch from my patio after they have been digging for worms and potato bugs aka rolley polleys. It was a no brainer that they would both love Buddy and the Nature Trackers book and the lift a flaps were a bonus that Miss C loved.
Did you know April is World Habitat Awareness Month? It is a worldwide observance for the need to protect the habitat of all Earth’s creatures and to make a conscious effort to preserve nature’s ecosystems, celebrating the spirit of unity between people, animals and the natural environment. And, Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth‘s natural environment! The Jim Henson Company, PBS KIDS, Readers Digest Children’s Books and Dinosaur Train are jumping onboard to celebrate Earth Month too!
