Richard Scary’s wonderful stories have been a part of my life for as long as I can recall. It’s was no surprise to me when I learned that Richard Scarry’s books have sold over 150 million copies and have been translated into 30 languages over the last 40 years! I remember my mom reading me several stories of Huckle the Cat, Lowly the worm, Mr. Fixit, and stories featuring many from the other fun characters all that can be found in the imaginatively enchanting world of Busy Town. I’d like to point out that not only myself but my younger siblings also had the chance of not only enjoying the books but also the Busy Town TV show that used to air on Nick Jr. many years ago.
Thanks to the One2One Network, I just learned about a new show based off Richard Scary’s stories called “Busytown Mysteries”! Thanks to Cookie Jar Entertainment Busytown Mysteries can now be seen locally on CBS each Saturday morning! You have no idea how thrilled I am about being able to share these true classic stories with my own children and without having to pay gobs of money to view them on some network channel is an added plus! You can check and see when this show comes on by visiting the following link http://bit.ly/busytownsched.
I was sent a DVD episode of Busytown Mysteries to review thank to One2One Network in order to spread the word! Each episode is about 24 minutes and features two unrelated stories that focus on introducing children to deductive reasoning skills. Who? What? When? Where? Why?
I know most children will fall in love with the many different characters and be quite engaged with the well thought out story lines! With titles like “The Falling Fruit Mystery” and the “The Dragon Hunters” children are bound to be in for some great adventurous! But the adventure doesn’t have to stop there, your children can enjoy the fun interactive website of BusytownMysteries.com any day of the week!
My daughter and I were having a lot of fun browsing through the interactive world of Busy Town just this morning! My daughter is adding so many new words to her vocabulary so we really enjoyed talking with many of the Busy Town friends. Other fun things you can find there include 14 games and activities designed for preschoolers, including interactive games, a Fan Club and “My First Email,” which lets little ones email their progress to pre-approved friends and family addresses.
I highly recommend introducing the children in your life to the new Busy Town Mysteries show as well an encouraging them visit the website where they will find so many enjoyable things to do, it’s always a plus when we can find great family friendly stories and character that can make learning so much more fun!
