Dinosaur Train Book Review & Giveaway

I have great news for all of you Dinosaur Train fans out there!!!  A brand new season of Dinosaur Train begins this January! 


In celebration of the new season, The Jim Henson company has teamed up with Reader's Digest to offer this exciting review and giveaway of their new book titled Buddy & The Nature Trackers.  This educational book includes 10 pages of fun. And when I say fun, I mean fun! That is because the book features 45 flaps to lift and learn.  The book is both entertaining and educational, making this an excellent book for any young child. 


This book is perfect for children ages two and up. My three year old and my four year old son really enjoy this book. I think the fact that all of the tabs  help bring this book to life, makes it more interesting than their other books. Matter of fact, it makes a great activity. The book teaches colors, counting, matching, action words, and opposites. 

Be sure to tune in to PBS KIDS on January 20th to watch a new one hour special called "Nature Trackers Adventure Camp".  This special will invite kids to learn about geography, palentology, rafting, mountain climbing, zip lining, and more. You can check out clips and full stories from "Natures Trackers Adventure Camp" online at , on the FREE PBS KIDS Video App, and on the PBS KIDS Roku channel. 

The special first episode of the new season will air on January 20th, so be sure to tune in. You can catch it on PBS KIDS. *

My son used to love watch the Dinosaur Train. Now he thinks he's way too old to watch it, sigh. It's a wonderful show for kids. Thank you for the review and link.

Anything that invites kids to learn about geography, palentology, rafting, mountain climbing and zip lining, is good in my book. I will have to pass this info on to a few friends with little ones.
