My son is 3 years old and asks to watch Wild Kratts all the time. As I am writing this post, he is reading the Wild Kratts book. Anytime he has his tablet, I always find him going to the Wild Kratts episodes. We limit his screen time, but we are fine with him watching Wild Kratts because we feel that he learns something from every episode. In fact, I learn something new every time I watch.
Chris and Martin Kratt start off a live segment with a wildlife moment in Wild Kratts. The episodes then segue into an animated version of the Kratt brothers and the animal topic. I love that it is fun, engaging and most importantly, educational.
PBS released a new Wild Kratts DVD on May 3rd. You won’t want to miss “Wild Animal Babies” on DVD. It features adventure at its most adorable. WILD KRATTS helps kids learn SCIENCE by exploring animals and their “Creature Powers.”
What’s better than exploring nature and meeting amazing animals with the Wild Kratts? Meeting amazing BABY animals with the Wild Kratts, of course! In select adventures on this DVD, the crew helps a very cute (and majorly destructive) baby elephant stay out of trouble, wrangles some playful lion cubs, and cares for their new pal, “Nubs,” a baby rhino.
The DVD includes 4 episodes:
“Elephant in the Room”
The brothers come across a lone baby elephant and bring him back to the Tortuga HQ for safety until they can find his mom. They quickly learn how mischievous baby elephants can be and get more than they bargained for when it almost destroys the Tortuga!
“Bad Hair Day”
Chris and Martin try to help a lion named “He Who Breathes Fire” get past obstacles and back to his pride, which is under siege from two intruder lions.
Chris and Martin get caught in the middle of a zebra stampede, and when the dust clears, a lone baby zebra is left behind. The Wild Kratts must find the young zebra’s herd and return him to his mom.
“Let the Rhinos Roll!”
The Wild Kratts team is on an important mission to unearth why rhinos are mysteriously disappearing from the African savanna. They soon discover that Zach Varmitech has been kidnapping them to create new super Rhino Dozers so the creature adventurers devise a plan to rescue them – and it just might work!
Inside the DVD are ideas on ways to extend learning. My kids always enjoy doing the activities that reinforce the DVD topic. You can also purchase a book to go with this DVD. It is called “Wild Animal Babies.” It comes with pull-out flashcards that my husband read to my son and then my son taught me all about the baby animals.
