Jet's enthusiasm for learning continues in this seasonal special, but its focus diverts from science to holiday traditions. In no less entertaining fashion than usual, Sydney and Sean introduce him to the hallmarks of Christmas à la America, right down to Santa's "ho, ho, ho." In Jet's typical way, his jubilance inspires impulsivity that's comical for his young viewers.

Ready Jet Go!: Holidays in Boxwood Terrace has less tangible learning quality than does the series itself, but it more than makes up for it in heartfelt messages about being a good friend and caring for others. Mitchell's predicament as an outsider to a tight peer group illustrates a fear familiar to many kids, and what he learns about communicating his feelings is a valuable takeaway. This and other instances of friendship certainly reflect the spirit of Christmas in this enjoyable tale.
