We recently were introduced to a new cartoon that is on CBS called Busytown Mysteries. It's based on the characters from the works of Richard Scarry (who has sold over 150 million copies of his books over the last 40 years!). The program is about 20 minutes long and shows 2 (aff) eleven minute stories. The stories revolve around Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm as they solve mysteries all over town (like who knocked all the cherries out of the farmer's tree). These stories engage our kids and makes them question who, what, when, where, and why. I love it when they are learning and not even realizing it! Will (my 2 (aff) year old) wasn't all that interested in this cartoon. However, my 5 year old did enjoy watching it, and she enjoyed the interactive games and activities that Busytown offers online! Online, they can interact with the characters and explore the different neighborhoods. They can even set up an email address (we aren't ready for that in our house quite yet!).
You can check out the tv schedule for Busytown Mysteries and see where it is playing in your area, so your kids can check it out! Check it out and tell me what you think!
