PBS Kids: a site for fun and learning

PBS kids is a popular channel for kid's television shows. is a great site that builds on fundamentals that are taught in their shows. For each show, their is a fun and educational game and video. Kids are not required to have an e-mail address or profile; they are allowed to simply watch videos and have fun. These games show kids how to recognize shapes, words, and numbers.This Curious George game helps kids to recognize simple shapes while having fun finding holiday presents with their favorite cartoon character.

The short movies children can watch are fun and educational. They are also completely child appropriate. This is a short clip that goes along with the Curious George game pictured above.

In this movie The Man in the Yellow Hat helps George find the perfect present for all of his friends. Not only does PBS have games and movies about Curious George, but they also feature other beloved childhood characters like Clifford the Big Red Dog and Elmo from Sesame St. This site is completely age appropriate and educational. However, I feel that kids would have a great time while learning because they get to play with their favorite television characters. This is an all-around fun and age appropriate kid site and therefor, earns a 9 out of 10.
