Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD {Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Addison K.A.T.!}

I won't mention the particular ones, but there are some television shows and characters that my kids like that make me cringe. Even though they clamor to watch them, it's hard for me to be okay with some of the words or actions that are displayed. My children are quite impressionable, after all!

However, one of the newest additions to the lineup at PBS KIDS (our favorite channel) that our whole family has been enjoying is none other than the fun and educational Dinosaur Train.

In Dinosaur Train, young viewers join Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons on whimsical adventures through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history and paleontology. I have learned quite a bit just by watching with my kids!

The Dinosaur Train itself is a colorful locomotive, customized to accommodate all kinds of dinosaurs, and it has the ability to visit the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous worlds. The Train's Conductor, a knowledgeable Troodon, provides passengers with fascinating facts along the way in their journeys.

Created by Craig Bartlett (of Hey Arnold!), Dinosaur Train embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains while encouraging basic scientific thinking and skills. Each episode includes animated segments with live-action sequences featuring a paleontologist who brings to life the show's natural science and natural history curriculum and gives specific facts about dinosaurs and compares their features to animals of today.

Considering how much my kids like Dinosaur Train, I'm not surprised that it is a Parents' Choice Recommended TV series and that their website received a Parents' Choice Silver Award and was the recipient of a prestigious 2010 Prix Jeunesse Award. In addition, their interactive website gives children a fun way to discover natural history and the science of paleontology through many games and activities.

As well as the engaging content, printables, games and dinosaur field guide at the Dinosaur Train PBS KIDS website, there is also a Dinosaur Train geocache program that encourages families to get out and discover treasures together. What a fun way for kids to explore their surroundings, use their observational skills and have their own adventure right in their neighborhood!

So, is there a Dinosaur Train fan in your life? They'll be excited to know that an all new episode is premiering today, December 6, right on PBS KIDS! In Big Stomping Dinosaur Feet Daphne, a Daspletosaurus, shows Buddy how to make stomping a fun dance instead of a temper tantrum. In Hornucopia at the Big Pond Tank introduces the Pteranodon family to his friend, Stacie Styracosaurus, a fellow Ceratopsian with a crown of elaborate horns on her head.

Finally, in Cretaceous Conifers, Buddy travels to the North Pole to explore nocturnal animals and becomes a detective while celebrating his birthday and more. Encore presentations of this episode will broadcast on December 8, 12, 20 and 24 (check your local listings) and is one of eight fun adventures on the Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD that PBS KIDS has released as well!

As well as the educational episodes, Dinosaurs in the Snow also features an interactive game, coloring pages, a dinosaur reference guide and parent information - and would be perfect for any Dinosaur Train fans to warm up the upcoming cold winter months. Retailing for $14.99, find this entertaining DVD in stores now... and, thanks to the generosity of PBS KIDS, one person will find it in their home as well, because...

One lucky person will win the Dinosaurs in the Snow DVD
from PBS KIDS!
