Wubbzy Goes to School! (Giveaway)

A great way to get kids prepared for going back to school, or starting school for the first time, is to read books and watch programs where the characters are also heading to school. Often, the characters will experience the same anxieties that children naturally feel at the beginning of the school year, and talking about them can help kids feel better in knowing that they’re not alone in their fears.

One of my favorite characters, Wubbzy, from the hit Emmy Award-winning Nick Jr. TV show, Wow Wow Wubbzy, has a brand-new DVD out called “Wubbzy Goes to School”! It contains the following six episodes, which explore topics such as nervousness about school, making new friends, and much more!

Who Needs School?
New Kid on the Block
Gotta Dance
Wubbzy the Star
You Gotta Have Art
Magic Tricks

Here’s a video sneak peek at “Wubbzy Goes to School”:



[Email subscribers: Please click on the title of this post to watch this video online.]

We received a preview copy of “Wubbzy Goes to School,” and my boys and I watched it together. They’re going into first grade this year, and we talked about being anxious about meeting their new teachers, their excitement about seeing their friends again, and their dread of more homework this year! Watching “Wubbzy Goes to School” together was a terrific way to bring up these subjects in a relaxed atmosphere and to compare my kids’ emotions with those of Wubbzy and his friends.

I encourage you and your children to talk about the new school year and get a copy of “Wubbzy Goes to School” on DVD to enhance your discussion!
