National Geographic and Earth Day (Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is comment #6: Sandy.

With Earth Day approaching, we are all looking for ways to talk to our kids about the environment and engage them in activities that will foster a long-term appreciation for the world in which we live. To this end, National Geographic Kids Entertainment is excited to announce two new Earth Day-centric episodes of its popular children’s series “Mama Mirabelle’s Home Movies” and “Toot and Puddle.”

Tune in to “Mama Mirabelle” the weekend of April 18 for “Kings & Queens of the Savanna”: Bo, Karla, and Max are having a discussion about who the true king or queen of the savanna might be. Mama takes the kids on a nature walk to demonstrate that when it comes to important jobs, nearly every animal on the savanna is a king or a queen. Check Sprout and your local public television station for dates and times.

Then, on April 22, Noggin will air two new episodes of “Toot & Puddle”: In “Recycle Cycle,” Toot and Puddle rally the gang to clean up a pollution problem in Pocket Pond. In “Being Green,” Toot & Puddle visit Uncle Bertie in Scotland to attend his latest art show. In the process, the pig pals get an enjoyable lesson in living green.


I have advance screeners of both episodes for one lucky winner! To enter:

  • Just mention in comments before midnight, April 25th why you’d like to win. That’s it!
  • A random winner will be selected and notified via email on April 26th.
  • The winner will then have 3 days to claim their prize.

To earn extra entries, you may do one or all of the following. Each one counts as an extra ticket but you must leave a separate comment for each one.

  • Mention this giveaway on your blog with a link back here.
  • Place my button in your sidebar.

This giveaway is open to US addresses. Good luck!

  45. sito says:

    I like the girls to watch things that give them a message about being kind to the earth, animals, and other people in a way that entertains them. They enjoy the story and pick up the messages incidentally. As they grow, they should be able to relate more closely to some of these issues. It’s a good thing!
