Arthur's Travel Adventures...R&G

It is no secret about how I feel about PBS.  PBS is home to the shows I like the very best for my family.  I can always find something for me and for the kids that is interesting, fun and of quality.  When I was asked to review the latest from Arthur I was ecstatic.  Arthur's Travel Adventures was destined to be a hit with A&W as they are huge fans of this show!  Here is the scoop on this DVD which is available now....

Based on the best-selling children's books by Marc Brown, join the world's most famous aardvark, eight-year-old Arthur Read, and his family and friends on these great adventures!

Episodes include...
D.W. Goes to Washington - D.W.'s on her way to Washington. (Someone should have called ahead and warned the government). She's bored, bored, BORED by it all until she gets lost during a tour of the White House. A kind employee reunites her with her family and invites them all in for pizza. (Come to think of it, the guy sure has a nice office. And doesn't he look a little...familiar--)

Arthur Goes To Camp - Arthur and his friends go to summer camp, where it's strictly boys vs. girls.

Arthur's Family Vacation - What's got moldy bathrooms, lumpy beds and lots of rain? Arthur's family vacation. (And for this, he missed camp!) But as Arthur discovers, there are fun things to do in the rain. Like visiting alligators, eating fudge and watching happy people on sun-drenched beaches get eaten by sharks (at the movies, that is!).

Grandpa Dave's Old Country Farm - Arthur and D.W. go to visit their grandfather who lives on a farm. But the visit doesn't turn out as expected, because Grandpa Dave isn't your usual kind of grandfather. What's more, he's finding it harder and harder to keep up with things. Will Grandpa Dave have to give up his farm?

The Shore Thing - Arthur and D.W. beg Dad to take them to Aqualand--the coolest water park ever! But he says that he knows an even better place...'Ocean Zone.' The kids explore the old-fashioned ocean, and find all kinds of cool sea stuff by the sea shore.

Also includes...
Arthur's Mystery Envelope
Buster Makes the Grade, and
It's a No-Brainer

Special DVD features include...
- Printable coloring pages and activities.


The kids just love this show and so do I.  The kids are like all kids...the sometimes argue and are sometimes naughty but the always manage to work things out with problem solving, friendship and teamwork.  These episodes were extra fun because they focus on adventures away from the house.  The kids enjoyed all the episodes but they seemed to particularly seemed to relish DW's adventure at the White House in DW Goes to Washington!  Arthur is what you would expect from a PBS program...quality, educational fun!  Arthur is amongst the favorite television programs here at RBM and this DVD is one  I know we will watch over and over again.  You can purchase this DVD for just $11.99 on the PBS website found HERE.

I am so pleased to tell you that my friends at PBS are giving FOUR lucky RBM readers a copy of Arthur's Travel Adventures.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter....

My boyfriend is taking my son and I to Disney World the end of May. Not a summer trip though. Don't think we will be going anywhere during the summer months.

I have a 3 month old so our traveling plans are limited for my own sanity. lol We will be going to the zoo and local museum though!

sara said...

Well, I am also pregnant but I do travel. I do not think being pregnant is like being sick, right?

Of course if you do not feel like moving around, that's another thing.

An adventure is never an adventure when it's happening.Challenging experiences need time to ferment,
and an adventure is simply physical and emotional discomfort
recollected in tranquility.
