Today we hosted a special Dinosaur Train movie screening at our house. I connected with the folks at PBS Kids while at the EVO ’11 conference and because of that I’ll be doing some special reviews and posting some great info about PBS Kids on the blog. This is perfect because Eva is a huge fan of PBS Kids and the great programming that they have. Dinosaur Train is one of those terrific shows that is on PBS Kids. It is about a family of Pteradons and their adopted T-Rex son, Buddy. They go on some fun adventures through the many different time periods of prehistory. They get to the different time periods through a special train that goes through time tunnels. There is even a lesson about real dinosaurs at the end of each episode.

We were lucky enough to get a special DVD of a bunch of upcoming episodes including the big movie “Dinosaur Big City”.
