PBS Kids has always been a big part of our family and now we will be able to enjoy episodes of our favorite PBS Kids shows that are holiday related. I love having my daughter watch TV shows that teach her things at the same time as entertain her. She really loves the different holiday films. I love getting into the holiday spirit.
“CAILLOU: CAILLOU’S CHRISTMAS”
“CAILLOU’S CHRISTMAS” includes 12 fun-filled holiday and winter themed adventures! From visiting Santa and going Christmas tree shopping in “Holiday Magic,” to planning to stay up all night to see Santa in “Caillou’s Christmas Eve,” this DVD features stories that will get kids into the holidayspirit. In addition to these two tales, this DVD also includes “Caillou Goes Caroling,” “Caillou’s Snowman,” “Winter Mystery,” and “Dogsled Ahead!”
“ODD SQUAD: REINDEER GAMES”
The first ODD SQUAD DVD release, “REINDEER GAMES” features three stories – “Reindeer Games,” “Ms. O Uh-Oh,” and “Party of 5,4,3,2,1.” In “Reindeer Games,” Ms. O attempts to get off Santa’s naughty list, while Olive and Otto combine forces with Santa to find his missing reindeer, which have accidently been shrunk and escaped their barn! Using math skills, including geometry and spatial sense, the agents must locate all the reindeer and help Santa deliver presents.
ODD SQUAD is a live-action series with the goal of helping kids ages 5-8 learn math. The show focuses on two young agents, Olive and Otto, who are part of Odd Squad, an agency whose mission is to save the day whenever something unusual happens.

When Santa accidently flies away in Peg and Cat’s spaceship, they need to find a way to make and deliver presents for all the kids of the world. Tackling one problem at a time, Peg and Cat must fix the Super Big Present Making Machine, figure out how to get the presents into 100 sleighs, and work to make sure all 100 sleighs are accounted for after a huge snowstorm.
PEG + CAT is created by Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson and produced by The Fred Rogers Company. ODD SQUAD and PEG + CAT are funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the U.S. Department of Education through the CPB-PBS Ready To Learn Initiative, a program that supports the development of innovative educational television and digital media targeted to preschool and early elementary school children and their families, especially those from low-income communities.

Filled with the Christmas spirit, Bear makes a sacrifice to ensure Dog’s Christmas will be merry!
