'Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Big and Small!'
(Ian James Corlett, Claire Corlett, Laura Marr, Erika-Shaye Gair, Colin Murdock, et al / DVD / G / 2019 / PBS Kids)

Overview: Learn all about dinosaurs of different shapes and sizes! First, Mikey Microraptor is visiting Tiny at the family nest when next-door neighbor Larry Lambeosaurus tells Mikey he is too small to be a dinosaur.

Then, Buddy and Tank Triceratops are best friends who share a love for comparing features. Buddy, Tank, and the kids go on a quest to track down Ceratopsians with horns numbering 1-15!

DVD Verdict: Dinosaur Train is, as its heart, a tale of friendly dinosaurs who climb aboard a train to visit different times throughout the prehistoric age, learning about dinosaurs and having fun adventures.

Indeed, Dinosaur Train completely changes how kids learn about dinosaurs. Finally, all the mistakes I was taught as a kid are repaired! Dinosaurs use tails for balance, have proper names, sometimes are tiny, have feathers, fly, are birds, swim, hunt, etc.

Mix in some really well done music and clear, quality animation, and you've got a great show.

Best of all is a moment after each episode with a real paleontologist who clears up fact from fiction and even gives great details about what was learned in the cartoon.

Finally, a TV show is using standard teaching methods like reinforcement and repetition without boring us to death!

In brand new collection 'Dinosaur Train: Dinosaurs Big and Small!' we join the gang for 10 fun adventures, big and small, where they discover a new species, meet a small mammal friend, and lots more!
