DVD Giveaway! Celebrate Science with Sid the Science Kid, The Octonauts, and The Cat in the Hat Knows Best

Review copies and giveaway provided by NCircle Entertainment.  The thoughts and opinions within are both personal and unbiased by this.  

Spring is here and since we're all eager to get outside it's the perfect time to celebrate science and the natural world around us!  NCircle Entertainment is one of my favorites because their mission is to provide "Entertainment that Educates" and the three titles I have to giveaway are perfect examples of just that.

Now that my oldest is seven and a half and transitioning to non animated shows I appreciate the education portion more and more.  I really love that Side the Science Kid, The Octonauts, and The Cat in the Hat Knows Best are all informative while still being able to entertain both a 2.5 and 7.5 year old at the same time!

Let's check out which titles NCircle Entertainment is providing in the giveaway and keep reading until you get to the Rafflecopter entry box.  (Subscribers will need to click over to enter.)

After a rainstorm, the sun comes out and Sid spots a big rainbow in the sky. He races inside to tell his parents, but by the time he brings them outside to see it, the rainbow is gone. Sid and his friends investigate rainbows at school where they discover that rainbows can only form when light passes through water droplets.

Themes explored include: Where does light come from? How are shadows made? How are rainbows created? What causes darkness?

We love Sid and always sing along to the catchy songs when watching.  This was one of the first preschool shows I was really impressed back when my daughter was just starting to be able to sit long enough to watch a show.  I love how they model the scientific process on the show and how the kids use their science journal.  I have learned lots of facts while watching this show over the years.

This DVD includes the following exciting adventures: Captain Barnacles leads a mission to rescue Dashi, who is trapped inside a giant whale shark; Kwazii takes to the skies to retrieve a precious book from a school of flying fish; Peso tries to bandage a Great White Shark without becoming his lunch – and much more! Plus, in a special extra feature, Tweak & Tunip tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Gup-X!

When the Octonauts first came on television, my first thought was that this was one of the cutest styles of animation ever.  Besides the adorable delivery, I really like how you not only learn about different plants and animals, they also touch on environmental issues in an easily accessible and understandable way for children.

Join the Cat in the Hat on a trip into space, and learn why the cosmos is such a cool place! In this new DVD, the Cat and his friends visit each of the planets, the sun and the stars. Young viewers can learn why day turns to night thanks to our friend, the sun.

Space is always such an interesting topic to kids but some of the books about it can be very dry and so factual based that they are a little boring for younger kids.  This DVD is a great way to help nurture your future astronaut.
