As usual, linking up at Conversion Diary. Happy Friday, all!
Even though I made a wee bit of fun of them in this post, I actually enjoy most of the children's television shows the Agents watch. (Yes, they watch TV. I know, the horror.) Following are seven we particularly like.
Charlie is the epitome of the patient older sibling. A great model for parents to take note of as well. The books are awesome, too. (I dare you to try reading one without a British accent. It can't be done.) Also find them on CBeebies . . . get it? BBC, backwards? We discovered the joys of CBeebies on our trip to London last spring.
Love this link about The Man in the Yellow Hat and Positive Discipline. We typically have at least three CG books out of the library at any given time, too.
Dinosaurs will be one of our new topics for this upcoming homeschool semester. I'm sure the 75 online dinosaur field guide cards on the DT website will be put to good use. Agent A, in particular, is a huge dinosaur fan. Roar!

The Agents especially love when the Einsteins visit places we've also been. Agent E will comment on the classical music we listen to in the car when she recognizes what episode it is from.
Vocabulary lessons from a talking dog. What could be better?
Another CBeebies show. Thanks to Captain Barnacles and his crew, Agents E and J took a huge interest in ocean life and learned facts about over 50 sea creatures. I'm sure this information will come in handy on our aquarium visit next month.
