I may be a strict mom but my kids are allowed one TV show each per day exceptions made on my sick days and as needed. I let them select from the shows we’re recorded on the DVR or have copies of on DVD.
My 4YO’s favorite is Word World on PBS kids. He is very interested in spelling and reading, and he’s just plan into the entertainment of watching TV. My 21MO who can’t say many words but can say Word Wolds likes to watch the show for the animals and he wants to be just like his big brother. I like letting my boys watch Word World because it offers lessons in friendship and literacy.
Word World just released a new DVD on May 3, The Train Escapade, which offers four episodes and is 60 minutes long.
