I remember when the only choice for weekday children shows was PBS. I grew up watching all the greats like Sesame Street and Mister Rogers Neighborhood. But now there’s so much more variety on PBS for little ones. There are even special themed Valentine’s Day episodes. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Would You Be Mine? and Word World Be My Valentine’s are both themed for Valentine’s Day and geared towards teaching children while entertaining them at the same time.
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood reminds me of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood. And Daniel Tiger is just too cute! In Would You Be My Valentine Daniel Tiger learns there are many ways to show people you love them. You can give them a hug, sing them a song, make them a card and so much more. Daniel receives a card and he doesn’t know who gave it to him. So he sets out to find the sender and thank them. Along the way he runs into many of his friends. None of them had given him the card but they had plenty of Valentine’s Day wishes to give him. But by the end of the day he finds out his Grandpere had given him the card!
There are 8 Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood tales included in Would You Be My Valentine including –

Peyton LOVES Word World. I can honestly say I had never watched it before but Peyton sure has. They watch it at school so she was super excited to see Be My Valentine. And I was eager to see what my daughter had been watching so we sat down together and enjoyed the show. Within a few minutes I could see why kids love this show. All the objects, animals, everything are words! For example, Sheep looks like a sheep but you can clearly see he’s made up of the word sheep. What a clever way to teach kids to read! And they were also talking about rhyming and trying to sing a song that rhymed. Peyton was completely into this and was evening talking back to the tv. I was really impressed with World Wold.
Included in Be My Valentine are 5 fun stories –

There’s an Ant in Every Giant
