With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, we're gearing up for our second big travel season (summer being the first). PBS Kids has just released a new compilation called "20 FURRY TALES" that features over 4 hours of PBS favourites that will be a long-trip lifesaver!
I know that we can really get into a rut when it comes to kids programming. The girls will find a show or two that they really like, we'll set the PVR and that's the end of it. A compilation like this gives us guaranteed Read more [...]
