Evangelizing: Peep

Peep is a kids’ show that airs in the US on Discovery Kids channel. From the website: “Each half-hour episode contains two stories which highlight specific science concepts, plus two live-action shorts presenting real kids playing and experimenting with these concepts in their own big wide worlds.”
Since I first recorded it a few weeks ago after getting a tip from one of the various parenting blogs I read, Lisa has been telling everyone she knows (with kids) about it. I am firmly of the belief that if your kids are allowed to watch TV, they should at least learn something while watching (I’m looking at you, Univision). That’s why, even though the repetition gets annoying, I don’t mind her watching Blue’s Clues. Peep goes even further and teaches elementary science (how rabbits live, what’s a rain storm, water displacement) in a simple way that even Ellie can understand. Even better, they have actual kids demonstrating the science in between the cartoons.
This show has Ellie’s Seal of Approval, as she now asks to watch it by name. It airs in the US on TLC at 8:30am and Discovery Kids at 9am weekdays.
