This Tuesday, my friends at PBS Distribution are releasing a pair of new DVDs featuring the PBS KIDS series’ DINOSAUR TRAIN and MARTHA SPEAKS. Gearing up for those, they’ve sent over some clips, along with one from the February 25th release of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD: DANIEL’S BIG FEELINGS.
Check ’em all out below, right here on The Rock Father…
Martha Speaks features an outspoken, honest, smart, confident dog who loves to eat (and talk!). When Martha is accidentally fed alphabet soup, this gives her the power of speech and the chance to speak her mind to anyone.
Featuring four outstanding adventures and two Be My Valentine Cards,“Dinosaur Train: I Love Dinosaurs” makes for an outstanding Valentine’s Day treat! Two of the stories included on this DVD are “King Meets Crystal” and “Erma and the Conductor.” In “King Meets Crystal,” King Cryolophosaurus is interested in becoming friends with Crystal, but he gets nervous when trying to talk to her. Tiny and Buddy help King overcome his nervousness. In “Erma and the Conductor,” the Pteranodon family is on the Dinosaur Train headed to the Big Pond to watch a meteor shower! Mr. Conductor stops to pick up Erma Eoraptor, his best friend. At the Big Pond, the Conductor and Erma are interrupted a few times while trying to be alone, but soon find the perfect spot back on the Train.
In “DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD: Daniel’s Big Feelings,” four-year-old Daniel Tiger invites young viewers directly into his world, giving them a kid’s eye view of his life and making them feel like one of his neighbors. As they follow Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers and their families learn fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for dealing with everyday experiences, like feeling left out or frustrated, being jealous of a friend, or understanding how someone else feels.
Episodes on the “Daniel’s Big Feelings” DVD include: Duckling Goes Home/Daniel Feels Left Out/Daniel Gets Frustrated/Frustration at School/Daniel is Jealous/Jealousy at the Treehouse/Someone Else’s Feelings and Empathy at School. The bonus episodes on this DVD are Daniel Gets Mad and Katerina Gets Mad.
