Sid the Science Kid

Review by Toni:
The Weather kid Sid has a few episodes on it. The first one is the Sid’s Special Sunny Dad’s Day episode--Sid is excited to play soccer with his Dad outside but he’s not excited to lather up in sunscreen, because it takes way too long to put on! At school, Sid and his friends discover that sunscreen is a great way to protect your skin from the sun. And they also learn about the amazing ways the sun helps the Earth. This is perfect for summer and so fun to watch.

The next episode is Sid’s Rainy Play Date, Sid is supposed to have a play date outside, but the forecast calls for rain! Sid isn’t too happy and wonders if the rain knew he wanted to play outside? At school, Sid and his friends discover that rain actually comes from rain clouds! They also learn that rain is really important because it helps living things grow. This was great because right now Utah has had some crazy weather and that includes lots and lots of rain and we have been really getting sick of rain at least now the kids know what it helps and why it rains.

In Sid’s Cool Holiday, Sid loves celebrating the winter holidays where he lives, because it’s always sunny and warm. But this year, Sid and his family are visiting relatives where it’s chilly and cold. Sid wonders why it can’t be warm everywhere? At school, Sid discovers that temperatures are different all over the world! This one was great because my kids ask me all the time why is it so hot in Arizona and not in Utah. Why does it not snow in Arizona. So this helped them understand it alot better than me trying to explain it lol!

And in The Wind Did It Sid can’t figure out who messed up the pile of leaves he raked up in the backyard. At school, Sid and his friends discover that wind is strong enough to make sand dunes, waves, move sail boats, and even blow away a pile of leaves!

One lucky reader will win this fun DVD!
