Best Kids Show Out there
I cannot recommend this show enough. This show uses simple story lines to teach valuable lessons. Unlike a lot of other shows out there that cram learning down your throat this one focuses on learning in real-life situations. I am a 5th grade teacher and some of the kids I have encountered do not understand many of the simple science concepts that are presented in this show. George is able to encounter magnets, simple machines and explore cause and effect. However, as the parent of a 4 year old the most valuable part for me is that I can watch WITH my daughter and have great discussion. This gives my daughter realia that we refer back to every day. For example, recently the water in our town was not working and she looked at me and said "well, you just dig and find more water". Although she has learned simple math and science concepts (not to mention the terrific vocabulary, they don't "simplify" because it's for kids) the reason I recommend this show is because it teaches critical thinking, I cannot stress enough how important that is for kids today. This show is a great jumping off point for any and all types of exploration, we should be watching shows that make our children CURIOUS and encourage them to question the world around them. And I know that parents worry that their child will not be ready for kindergarten if they don't know every letter and sound etc... But I am here to tell you if you read and talk to your child everyday they will be fine but if they don't know how to think critically (which they ABSOLUTELY can do as a toddler)they will struggle. So please use this show to your advantage and listen to their brains clicking away, you will enjoy yourself!
