Valentine's Day is a fun holiday, especially this year as my oldest is in Kindergarten. It is the very first time that she gets to give Valentines to her friends and write them all by herself. She couldn't be more thrilled (or proud of herself)!
To celebrate, we are reading lots of great books together as well as Valentine's Day themed movies and shows. Thanks to PBS Kids, we have three new DVD's from some of our favorite PBS shows to add to our collection.
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Would You Be Mine?
WOULD YOU BE MINE?” features eight stories including “It’s Love Day!” and “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise.” In “It’s Love Day,” Daniel makes special heart cards to bring to school and hand out. While at school, some of the kids explain how they like to say “I love you” to their friends and family – Prince Wednesday likes to sing, and Miss Elaina likes to give hugs.
In the story “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise,” Daniel helps his mom make a special heart-shaped pizza and finds a way to show Grandpere how much he loves him by setting up a special treasure hunt just for him featuring sparkling purple hearts. The SRP for this DVD is $12.99.
I grew up watching Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. Daniel Tiger is a modern animated series inspired by the magic of the original classic. This cuddly tiger is not only cute, but he helps little ones learn something new in every show from potty training, and dealing with new siblings, to sharing and making new friends.
This Valentine's DVD is all about love. My girls enjoyed learning about "love day" and the fun ways we can show love to our family and friends. And since AK loves Daniel Tiger, we looked back on one of our special memories together as a family, the 2015 White House Easter Egg Roll where she met him.

Dinosaur Train: I Love Dinosaurs
Two of the four stories included on this DVD are “King Meets Crystal” and “Erma and the Conductor.” In “King Meets Crystal,” King Cryolophosaurus is interested in meeting Crystal, but he’s nervous to talk to her. Can Mr. Conductor, Mrs. Pteranodon, Buddy, and Tiny help King overcome his nervousness?
In “Erma and the Conductor,” the Pteranodon family is on the Dinosaur Train headed to the Big Pond to watch a meteor shower! Mr. Conductor stops to pick up Erma Eoraptor. At the Big Pond, the Conductor and Erma are interrupted a few times while trying to be alone, but soon find the perfect spot back on the Train. The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
There's just something about dinosaurs that captures children's imagination. Dinosaur Train is another of our favorite series with catchy music and great lessons. AK loved looking back at the Library of Congress 2013 National Book Festival where we were able to interact with lots of PBS Kids characters, including Buddy.

WordWorld: Be My Valentine
This DVD includes five stories, two of which are Valentine’s Day themed. “My Fuzzy Valentine” features Sheep working to create a valentine song for her best friend Bear. Unfortunately she has trouble finding just the right rhyme to finish her song. With help from Fly, she uncovers the perfect rhyme and makes Bear a valentine with real heart.
In “Love, Bug,” Bug wants to sign a valentine for his favorite WordFriend, but doesn’t know how to write his name. With lots of encouragement from Frog he learns that with a little practice he can write his name and give his valentine. The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
WordWorld makes spelling and learning sight words fun! AK loves pointing out the words she recognizes from school. Building those fundamental reading skills is so important and this makes it interactive and exciting for her.
