S is for Swan! If you grew up a 90's kid (like me) chances are you've seen The Swan Princess once or twice (or maybe 100 times, no judgement) and have probably introduced the series to your kids. I have great news, the 10th installment in The Swan Princess saga, The Swan Princess: A Royal Wedding is now available on digital and for rent at REDBOX. To celebrate the release, here is a fun, swan-themed activity to do with your kids (or by yourself, again, no judgement).
"and I said HEY! what a wonderful kind of day, where you can learn to work and play, and get along with each other". Talk about a catchy theme song!

Arthur: The Ultimate Friendship Collection is coming to DVD this August!

If you are a parent to a toddler or pre-school aged child, chances are you've seen an episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, or two or three, okay you've been probably singing the theme song since you read the title of this post.

In the 5th season, beginning in August, Daniel will show how he and his neighborhood handle a health crisis.
