Curious George Celebrates Mothers Day, Moms Celebrating Moms May 5th Twitter Party and MORE!

Do you remember your favorite book as a child? The one you would have your parents read to you at Bedtime?

I had three particular favorites that I never tired of, Curious George, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Ferdinand The Bull. My mom would have to read those to me over and over and I loved the silly voices she would put on for each character she read.

I am not yet a Mom (or actually even ready to consider Motherhood yet!), but I am an Aunt and a GodMother, and I of course shared my love for my favorite books with each of my nieces, nephews and Godchildren when they were born.

One of my nephews really took to Curious George the way I did at his age, and it became his favorite book for everyone to read to him. He shares many traits with Curious George actually, adventurous, helpful, sweet, and naturally curious!

I recently received a screening party package that contained tons of Curious George Fun, and while he is way too old for it now, my teen Nephew and my younger Nieces and Nephews came over to enjoy a screening of  Curious George "Mother's Day Surprise!' premiering Friday, May 6th on PBS Kids (check local listings for airings in your broadcast area HERE). I love that I didn't even have to twist his arm (being his favorite 'Titi' (Aunt) definitely has its advantages!).

In this special episode, which you can catch on May 6th, Curious George and his new friend Marco, decide to host a Dia De La Madres (Mother's Day) celebration for Marco's Mom as a surprise! George decides to help Marco throw a surprise party for his mom and enlists the help of Marco's Sister and the Man with the Yellow Hat to help prepare some of Marco's Mom's favorite foods and a Pinata.

On May 5th, another episode that features George's new friend Marco will air called 'George's Home Run', where Marco tries to hit his first Little League Home Run while George plays Scorekeeper.

The episodes end with a small featurette of real children learning to apply the lessons in the episode to their own life, which was a big hit with my nieces and nephews!

I only wish George had met Marco when I was little or better still when my teen Nephew who shares my love for George was still young! I remember having Pinatas at my birthday parties!
