Sid the Science Kid and Dive Olly Dive DVD Giveaway

Sid the Science Kid and Dive Olly Dive are two great TV series that teach children about the world around them, encourage curiosity and learning and at the same time are both entertaining and fun to watch.

Sid the Science Kid is an Emmy nominated PBS series and after watching the DVD's I understand why. Each story teaches a lesson as to why and how things occur in the world around us. From why banana's turn brown to how things grow to freezing and unfreezing objects, Sid the Science Kid makes learning fun. Valuable lessons and educational themes are at the heart of this great children's series.

Dive Olly Dive is also and Emmy nominated series and airs on PBS Sprout. About two submarines in training, Dive Olly Dive teaches children about important lessons such as friendship, learning from your mistakes and not to judge people based on their appearance. The graphics are great and much of the story takes place on the ocean or in the world below the surface.

In a world that is flooded with meaningless shows it is refreshing to watch two series that make your child laugh but also provide educational information. The graphics on both these series are detailed and colorful. The accompanying songs are fun to listen to and just make you want to smile. I highly recommend these shows be added to your child's watch list.

Lookout for five new episodes of Sid the Science Kid to air on PBS stations in September.

The first two DVD's include Sid the Science Kid - Change Happens and Side the Science Kid- The Bug Club and the Dive Olly Dive: Ship Shape Sub DVD are now available in stores. However, I am giving you a chance to win all THREE DVD's. Each DVD contains four episodes each and they all include a Bonus DVD of Front Row Fun.
