My girls LOVE Peg + Cat! PBS Kids is their absolute favorite thing to watch. I don’t know that I want to admit this but we usually have the TV on in the background while playing in the mornings and PBS Kids is always on. When Peg + Cat first started, my 3 year old did not like it. But, that was because it messed up her schedule and Word World was no longer on. Once she gave it a fair shot, it became a favorite! I love that it really helps the girls with their math. Even my (almost) 2 year old answers the questions right a lot and helps them solve problems! I was so excited to see that they were releasing a new DVD- PEG + CAT: PIRATES AHOY! AND OTHER REALLY BIG PROBLEMS – because I know it would be a great addition to our DVD collection!
From helping a group of hungry pirates fairly share tropical fruit, to measuring their way to buried treasure, Peg and Cat embark on swashbuckling adventures in this new fun-filled DVD that will help kids learn problem solving and foundational math concepts and skills. Each PEG + CAT adventure features a story in which Peg and Cat encounter an unexpected challenge that requires them to use math and problem-solving skills in order to save the day. While teaching specific math lessons, the series displays the values of resilience and perseverance.
The “PEG + CAT: PIRATES AHOY! AND OTHER REALLY BIG PROBLEMS” DVD will be available for purchase on December 23, 2014 – so just in time to pick up a last minute stocking stuffer! In addition to featuring seven stories, the DVD includes five printable activities – the pirates’ fruit salad recipe, pirates + peaches board game, four fantastic flip-books, Cat sock-beanie instructions, and PEG + CAT stick puppets.
My girls loved everything about this DVD, and I am sure the children in your life will too! For more information on specific PBS KIDS content supporting literacy, science, math and more, visit pbs.org/pressroom, or follow PBS KIDS on Twitter and Facebook.
