New Curious George Vantines Day Episode...Coming Soon!

The PBS program, Curious George, has been a staple in our home for years.  This curious monkey and his antics and sweet disposition never get old.  I was so excited to hear that there will be a new Valentine's Day episode coming up next month.  I know the kids and I will be watching!  Here is the scoop...
The ninth season of Curious George, the PBS KIDS hit series, continues with a new episode full of love and curiosity on Monday, February 9, 2015 (check local listings).

In “Happy Valentine’s Day, George,” Curious George wants to make his friends the best Valentine’s Day card ever, but even with four paws, it takes a long time to create homemade cards for everyone. Using sponge shapes, red paint, and a waffle iron, George creates the first ever monkey Valentine’s printing press!

“George is a little monkey with a big heart,” says executive producer Dorothea Gillim. “Between George’s monkey antics and a catchy song, this episode is our Valentine to all our loyal viewers.”

This season continues to focus on teaching preschoolers about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, as well as use of the five senses (smell, taste, hearing, touch, and sight). The curious monkey’s adventures go in “Oh Deer.” When a hungry deer keeps nibbling on the flowers in George and Allie’s garden, George uses all of his five senses to keep the deer out. A scarecrow, loud noises, sticky tape, and stinky rotten eggs don’t work, leaving George with one last sense: taste! Will George’s recipe keep the deer away or make them hungry for more?

Curious George airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings). For more monkey fun, parents can access a variety of fun and educational resources, including games on the five senses like “Roller Monkey” and “Cows Don’t Quack!” on the Curious George website.

I also wanted to mention that my 5 year old daughter really enjoys the online Curious George games on  the PBS Kids website.  These educational games are free and you should definitely check them out!

I didn't realize that Curious George was educational. I just read the books when I was a kid. Times have sure changed, in a good way. Thanks for the info. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.
