“Big Big Dinosaur Week” Premiering on PBS Kids
Dinosaur Train is a big, big hit in our house. And this week from August 13-17 is the premiere of “Big Big Dinosaur Week” on PBS Kids, which will follow Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don in 4 new episodes as they learn all about the biggest of the dinosaur species. The kick-off episode begins aboard the Dinosaur Train when the Pteranodon family gets the idea to travel around and meet some of the biggest dinosaurs. They even sing the song â€The Biggest Dinosaurs,â€ before meeting Allie Alamosaurus, an enormous and friendly long-necked, plant eating sauropod. Encore broadcasts will run from August 17 to 19th (check local listings).
