I’m very excited to announce a great special from PBS KIDS because I’ve just started on as a PBS KIDS VIP, a group of parent bloggers who will be ambassadors to PBS through their blogs and other social media outlets. I’ll be attending the PBS annual meeting, talking about the PBS shows, apps and other special programs as well. The first is the celebration of Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday.
