What a fantastic show! Our family travels often, and it is wonderful to be able to watch a National Geographic Kids show that isn't boring, aimed at our toddlers that teaches geography in a fun and playful way, so our girls can learn about places around the world before we visit them. There are lots of great lessons here, too; about sharing, being a good friend, and trying new things. We love Holly Hobbie's books, too, and that's a great way to turn off the TV, but still give your kids a chance to connect to the characters. I would highly recommend the TV series AND the books!
