Dinosaur Train Dinosaurs A to Z Book Review & Giveaway

Dinosaur Train Dinosaurs A to Z Book Review & Giveaway

 

The “Dinosaurs A-Z” special is being aired as part of PBS KIDS’ summer learning initiative, which provides families with a variety of free and educational resources to encourage young learners to continue learning and exploring over summer vacation. Research shows that students experience significant learning loss when they do not participate in educational activities during the summer months, and that loss is even greater among children in low-income communities.   This exciting initiative kicked off on June 3, and features 10-weeks of programming and partnership activities designed to inspire kids 2-8 to continue learning and exploring over summer vacation!

The “Dinosaurs A-Z” programming special airing on July 8 and July 9 encourages kids to practice the alphabet while learning about the diversity of dinosaurs.

The conductor agrees, and as the Train starts picking up dinosaurs, Tiny, Buddy, Shiny and Don, help keep track of how many of the different species have come on board. They learn about classification and organize the dinosaurs by their species, features, and size. When all 26 dinosaurs finally come on board, the Train has more extra cars than ever before and they need an additional engine to help pull it! Once they arrive at Troodon Town for the picnic, Tiny leads the 26 different “A to Z” dinosaurs in a fun, rousing, and historic singing of the “Dinosaurs A to Z” song!
