Quantcast

Last month, I shared news about a new BABAR collection that eOne Home Video had announced for June 25. Now, with the release date nearing, eOne has teamed with The Rock Father to get three lucky readers and their children hooked-up with their own copies of the BABAR ADVENTURE PACK - a three-pack of classic adventures featuring the famous Elephant King, Babar.

When it comes to programming on Cartoon Network, I'm always divided. I love the Adult Swim lineup, but as the title indicates - it's hardly for the kids. On the daytime front, they've got some big hits that we just can't get into - popular titles like ADVENTURE TIME and REGULAR SHOW (I just can't see the appeal) - along with stuff like THE ANNOYING ORANGE, which lives up to it's name and makes me wonder "Who greenlit this?" Then, there's quality like Dreamworks' HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, STAR WARS: CLONE WARS, and DC Nation's TEEN TITANS GO. Now comes GROJBAND, a new, music-centric series that premieres today at 5pm/4c. We had the opportunity for a sneak-preview screening of the first couple episodes here at Rock Father HQ last week, and with the premiere finally here, it's time to share some thoughts and let you know just which side of the coin it lands on.

PBS KIDS VIPMy oldest daughter just wrapped preschool for the season, and while I do have her enrolled in a Day Camp a couple of days a week throughout the summer, I - like many parents - want to make sure that learning doesn't take a break just because school's out. To help combat the summer learning slump (a genuine issue that the National Summer Learning Association has data on), my friends at PBS KIDS have come up with a variety of FREE RESOURCES for kids and parents, including 10 weeks of themed programming, printable activities, and they've developed some great partnerships to keep learning fun and productive all summer long.

PBS KIDS VIP AmbassadorLast week, the world was introduced to the newest neighbor on SESAME STREET, a Writer from Puerto Rico named Armando - or 'Mando as the folks on the 'Street quickly dubbed him. The introduction of this new character is part of a focus on Hispanic Heritage and Diversity that plays a key role in the forthcoming 44th season of the iconic series on PBS KIDS. Mando (Ismael Cruz Cordova) joins Maria (Sonia Manzano), Luis (Emilio Delgado) and Muppets Rosita and Ovejita (Carmen Osbahr) as part of SESAME STREET's bilingual community. This week, my adventures took me to the famed Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach, where I joined my fellow PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent) Ambassadors at the 2013 PBS Annual Meeting. There, I spent some time with Mando and Rosita... and just may have found the answer to that age-old question: "Can You Tell Me How to Get to SESAME STREET?"
