As a child I recall seeing the books from Busytown Mysteries, I am uncertain if I ever really watched the cartoon on television, however, when the One2One Network asked if I would review this DVD I accepted because Busytown Mysteries introduces children to deductive reasoning skills; who, what, when, where, why?
As a young child I enjoyed reporting on various events and turning them into a mystery type of story. I can only hope Busytown Mysteries will pass my love of creating and solving mysteries down to my three children. This morning I sat on my couch in between my three children and watched the DVD sent to me for review and I loved watching my 7 and 3 year old interact with Busytown Mysteries to help solve the mystery of the falling cherries!
Some key points regarding Busytown Mysteries:
- Richard Scarry’s books have sold over 150 million copies and have been translated into 30 languages over the last 40 years.
- Busytown Mysteries can be watched on CBS weekend mornings, here is a schedule for Busytown Mysteries on CBS.
- Busytown entertains and educates children from home anytime with their Busytown Mysteries website.
- Busytown Mysteries is a half hour program on CBS but includes two 11 minute episodes, which is great for the young ones who don’t really have a long term attention span (like my AJ).
Make it a Happy Day!
