Curious George honors Hispanic Heritage Month

Curious George celebrates Hispanic Heritage month

The all new season of Curious George is off to an arts inspired start and along for the ride is once again Marco his Latino friend. The two amigos are set to commemorate Hispanic Heritage with a show scheduled to re-air the week of September 19th.

Starting with fresh new episodes on September 5th the new season is all about the arts and creative play with hints of math and engineering skills.

In the “Sock Monkey Opera,” Betsy becomes ill with the chicken pox and can’t go to see the show. But have no fear that George puts on an adorable show that will send your kids into a giggle.

My son and I love the new season as George captivates and inspires us through sculpting and photography in Shutter Monkey and George and the Giant Thumb. Take the great moments to capture and inspire creativity in your kids by coming up with your own plays. Andale, dress up and have some fun!

Just like season 5, season 6 of Curious George engages kids to get up and get going. I’m especially pleased with the real life vignettes after every show that promotes creativity.  Like I previously said, it’s taking George and Marcos’s creative moments to inspire moments in your real life.

Not only are the arts and sciences for cognitive development, it will pay off in the long run as noted by WGHB Executive Producer Dorothea Gillim.  “With this new season, kids will be inspired to dance, sculpt, and paint along with George, and they’ll also come away with knowledge of important STEM concepts.”

Enjoy the show and be sure to check out PBSKids.org for special features, contests and goods from Curious George.
