Today, August 13th, premiered “Big Big Dinosaur Week” on PBS KIDS. Now through Friday, the week will feature four new episodes that follow Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don as they discover the largest of the dinosaur species while exploring their natural surroundings. They’ll also learn about nocturnal and diurnal animals, sunrises and sunsets, natural art, and geysers. It’s no wonder my daughter knows SO MUCH about dinosaurs!
If you miss any of the episodes, don’t worry…..encore broadcasts will run from August 17 to 19th!
August is a BIG BIG travel and vacation month as families across the U.S. are getting out and about on day trips and vacations and creating summer fun memories! While some may have already started school, here in Texas we’ve got a couple more weekends to sneak in a last minute family getaway.
