PBS KIDS VIPOn November 27th, the Holiday Season kicks off on PBS KIDS with the return of THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS! - the smash hit that scored big with families last year, with over 3.6 million tuning in, and another 27 million streams! From there, PBS KIDS will be presenting all-new Holiday episodes of DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD and THOMAS & FRIENDS, along with the new SESAME STREET special, ELMO'S CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN. Pair those with encore presentations of Holiday favorites from CURIOUS GEORGE, ARTHUR, and SHALOM SESAME, and the season certainly looks bright. I've got the full run-down on all the PBS KIDS goodies, right here on THE ROCK FATHER. Start setting those DVRs!

PBS KIDSIn a season where new "Halloween specials" have been light, there's a real classic vibe that comes with CURIOUS GEORGE: A HALLOWEEN BOO FEST. Making it's television debut this Monday (10/28) on PBS KIDS (check your local listings), this first-ever pumpkin-spiced tale for the little monkey has a warmth that I haven't really gotten from recent seasonal fare. Seeing my oldest curl-up on the couch with her Curious George mask as we took in a sneak-preview here at Rock Father HQ, it reminded me of those nights as a kid in the 1980s where I'd do the same while eagerly-awaiting IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN. With that, CURIOUS GEORGE: A HALLOWEEN BOO FEST secures its place as part of 31 Days of Halloween here on The Rock Father.

PBS KIDS VIPMy oldest daughter just wrapped preschool for the season, and while I do have her enrolled in a Day Camp a couple of days a week throughout the summer, I - like many parents - want to make sure that learning doesn't take a break just because school's out. To help combat the summer learning slump (a genuine issue that the National Summer Learning Association has data on), my friends at PBS KIDS have come up with a variety of FREE RESOURCES for kids and parents, including 10 weeks of themed programming, printable activities, and they've developed some great partnerships to keep learning fun and productive all summer long.

PBS KIDS VIPEarth Day is this coming Monday, April 22, 2013... and PBS KIDS is presenting the television premiere of CURIOUS GEORGE SWINGS INTO SPRING! This all-new movie event features George and his pals exploring the magic of the Spring season through a colorful adventure. As a PBS KIDS VIP, I've already had the chance to enjoy this here at Rock Father HQ, and it comes highly-recommended by my own preschooler, Addie. She's watched it twice thus far. Check out a preview below...
