New on PBS: Mack and Moxy Teach Kids About Compassion, Learning, and Helping Others
Posted on April 19, 2016 at 3:30 pm
These days even adults can feel frustrated at the prospect of trying to find a good way to help others. So it is especially welcome that a new television series for kids has some gentle lessons about making a difference to spread kindness and generosity. Mack and Moxy is a great new PBS show for kids about compassion, empathy, heroes, and helping others.
Kate & Mim-Mim was actually created by a husband and wife and is based on their daughter Kate and her stuffed bunny rabbit. Kate’s riding her bike for the first time without training wheels and she keeps falling. In Mimiloo, Kate and her friends must learn to fly giant wind flowers in order to surprise Lily at her Spring Thing party! But Mim-Mim has never flown a flower before, and Kate must help him gain his confidence to become a fully-fledged flower pilot.
I have a copy to give away — with a special surprise extra toy!
Send me an email at email@example.com with Kate in the subject line and tell me your favorite flower. Don’t forget your address! (U.S. addresses only). I’ll pick a winner at random on March 8, 2016. Good luck!
