The Electric Company - PKTR 47

If you want to hear about a great new show for young kids learning to read, you'll want to download our first show of the year!

We'll tell you about the new show called, "The Electric Company."
Sound familiar?

Find out whether we talked about the same show that was on back in the 70s.  

Download our show and we'll let you know.

Then tune in again next Saturday to Blog Talk Radio's Parents and Kids Talk Radio at 2:00 pm (ET).

In the meantime, you can check out The Electric Company's new website here.

But first!!

We start the show with a discussion of the dog whisperer, Cesar Milan (pictured below), and an article he wrote this month, called "What Your Pet Can Teach You."  Good bits of wisdom to start off the year on a good foot (er, paw?).  Yuck, yuck (insert rimshot here).

The rest of the first half of the show is devoted to The Electric Company, then 30 minutes in, we'll tell you about our most recent favorite iGames (our way of more briefly saying games found in the iPhone/iPod touch applications store), including Scoops!

Thanks for listening!

Join us again next week on Parents and Kids Talk Radio.

What They Play - Real Moms Feature

We here at PKTR often try to help our listeners and readers find fun things to do in family life. Our regular listeners know how much we love playing and talking about all sorts of games, including board games and video games. In fact, with respect to video games, we've even talked about other websites that talk about games, like What They Play.

Well, they say that what goes around comes around, right? And this week, we're happy to say that Soapbox Mom is featured as one of the Real Moms on What They Play, the parents' guide to video games. The site's founder asked six moms questions about video games, fitness and attitudes about games. Read the questions and our responses by clicking here.
