Our Thoughts:
I feel like a broken record anytime I review something for PBSKids, but they do provide good quality entertainment. Dinosaur Train provides quality entertainment and educational programming for both the little ones and adults. Dinosaur Train is a program that your child can grow and develop with. They do a good job of keeping things interesting with exciting adventures and fun memorable songs.

Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs A to Z is no different. We were all glued to each of the episodes which included the following:

  • The Call of the Wild Corythosaurus
  • Fast Friends
  • One Small Dinosaur
  • Have You Heard About the Herd?
  • Dinos A to Z (Parts 1-4)
  • Bonus Episode: Solstice Time
You join the Pteranodon family as the meet some old friends and introduce us to some new species. We learn about the classification of all 26 dinosaurs in these episodes on the train. It doesn't end there after those nine fun filled episodes. The dvd is loaded with special features like Dr. Scott Video Segments, Interactive Games, Coloring Pages, Information for Parents, and more.

Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs A to Z is the latest in the series out on DVD for you to own. So pickup it up for your family today if you want educational, family friendly, fun programming.

PBS Kids is great! We love dinosaurs and are planning some natural history museum trips this summer, so this would be fun to watch beforehand. Thanks for the review!
