PBS Kids: Sid the Science Kid & Dive Olly Dive DVD Review & Giveaway

If you have a young child, you probably are already familiar with "Sid the Science Kid". You can find him on PBS every morning. Did you know that the Emmy-nominated PBS series is produced by The Jim Henson Company and KCET-LAHe? I didn't. Distributed by NCircle Entertainment, the newly released DVD, The Bug Club, features 4-half hour episodes for two hours of viewing pleasure. Also recently released was Change Happens.
Sid is an inquisitive child who begins every show with a question, such as"Why do dogs bark?" and the rest of the episode is filled with an educational adventure to answer the question. My 5 year old is a huge PBS Kids and PBS Sprout fan, so I have seen every episode. We can't wait until September for the release of 5 new episodes. You should try to catch it!

We haven't caught "Dive Olly Dive" so we were excited to review Ship Shape Sub. It's the cutest show about a little sub named Olly and his friend, Beth. They are submarines-in-training who teach interesting and educational facts about ocean life and lessons on life, as well. You can find Olly on PBS Sprout.

All three DVDs were a hit with my 5 year old - his favorite? Change Happens

Where do you purchase these great DVDs? You can purchase them at most retailers, directly through NCircle Entertainment or online at Amazon.com for $12.99 (MSRP)...or you can win all 3 here!
