Arthur’s 18th season began airing on WGBY last week. This long-running PBS KIDS’ show is a strong learning tool for home and classroom settings. Arthur and his friends will continue to have new adventures that explore childhood challenges with heart and humor while teaching problem-solving and pro-social skills. The fun continues on the ARTHUR website, where kids, parents, caregivers and teachers can access a variety of educational resources, such as lesson plans and activities. Arthur Family Health is also a special site with many wellness resources.
And for the new season, Arthur’s Big App just launched. As part of its ongoing commitment to help kids learn through educational media, PBS KIDS offers a variety of apps to help build school readiness skills. More information on PBS KIDS apps is available at pbskids.org/apps. Arthur’s Big App is also available for $2.99 on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com/PBSKIDS.
