My daughter loves PBS Kids and you have no idea how happy I am about that.  With all the other ‘kids’ programming available, I’m glad she still finds PBS Kids fun to watch considering she’s 7.  She’s very excited, as am I, about the upcoming Halloween shows on PBS.  Holiday specials always remind me of my childhood.  We didn’t have characters like Arthur when I was young but she’s grown up watching Curious George, Arthur, and The Cat and the Hat (which I did read.. I’m not that old) and she loves it when they have holiday specials.

This October, PBS KIDS features an array of exciting Halloween programming, including an all-new one-hour special, CURIOUS GEORGE: A HALLOWEEN BOO FEST, new episodes from THOMAS & FRIENDS and PEG + CAT, as well as encore presentations of Halloween episodes from all of your favorite PBS KIDS series.

I love that my 7-year-old doesn’t feel too old to watch PBS Kids.
