CHOO CHOO! CELEBRATE TRAINS THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF MAY WITH THE HIT PBS KIDS SERIES DINOSAUR TRAIN!
 
Dinosaur Train


“Dinosaur Train” will celebrate America’s love of trains with special programming and activities throughout the month of May. To kick off, the award-winning and critically acclaimed animated preschool series from The Jim Henson Company, will debut an all new episode on May 6 on PBS KIDS (please check local listings). Additionally, special train-themed activities and events will be featured in partnership with local PBS stations and on the series’ website. 
Celebrating National Train Day, which takes place on May 7th, the new episode includes two 11-minute animated segments with live-action sequences featuring a paleontologist who brings to life the show's natural science and natural history curriculum for preschoolers.  

We loved “Junior Conductor Jamboree,” where Buddy and his family ride the Dinosaur Train from one end of the line to the other and visit all three time periods--from the Cretaceous, through the Jurassic, to the Triassic. In “Troodon Train Day,” the Pteranodon family rides to Troodon Town to celebrate Troodon Train Day, where the main event is a concert by King Cryolophosaurus, giving his first performance in years! These are 2 awesome shows not to be missed by your "dino fans."

Select PBS Stations across the U.S. will also be hosting train-themed events throughout the month. 

There is also a “Dinosaur Train” interactive website that my daughter visits often at PBSKIDS.org/dinosaurtrain. Children can join BuddyTiny and all their friends as they discover natural history and the science of paleontology through fun games and activities. During the month of May, the website will celebrate trains with a special themed homepage and new fun printable activities. Kids can also play the online game “All Aboard!” to become a Jr. Conductor on the Dinosaur Train! (http://pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain/games/allaboard.html)
