As the summer comes to a close, it’s time to replace the beach pails with backpacks. It’s always a little hard but (for me at least) shopping for new back to school items makes it easier. This year PBS Kids and Whole Foods Market have teamed up and are offering some very cool back to school products ranging from notebooks made with recycled paper, organic backpacks and reusable lunch totes. PBS Kids and Whole Foods sent me some samples from their new line and I was impressed. All of the products are made from high quality materials in bright colors and feature fun images that appeal to both boys and girls. The best part is not only are they good looking, they are helping out the environment!
You can purchase the items at your local Whole Foods Market or shop online at PBS Kids .
As everyone is getting ready to go back to school everyone’s favorite monkey, Curious George, is going back to the jungle!
On August 17, Curious George is back to his inquisitive ways with the television premiere of PBS KIDS’ CURIOUS GEORGE 3: BACK TO THE JUNGLE. In this adventure-filled feature-length movie, Curious George takes a trip to space but crash-lands in the jungles of Africa, leading to an unforgettable journey with new animal friends. Featuring the voice talents of Angela Bassett and John Goodman, with music by the Plain White T’s, BACK TO THE JUNGLE is a fun-filled journey that the whole family will enjoy.
The latest George adventure promises to entertain kids of all ages. We previewed the movie with a group of preschoolers and they LOVED it. Even the “older” kids, aged 7-8, where totally captivated by the movie!
Make sure to check your local listings for viewing times. Curious George 3 is also available on DVD.
