The new PBS KIDS series, PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC, will have its broadcast premiere on WGBY this Monday, February 19. Based on the best-selling HarperCollins Pinkalicious book series by Victoria Kann, the programs will encourage children to explore the arts and spark creativity, covering areas such as music, dance and visual arts.
As Executive Producer Dorothea Gillim notes, “Research shows that participating in the arts strengthens children’s cognitive and emotional skills, and leads to higher academic performance.” Building on the animated series, PBS LearningMedia now has a new Pinkalicious & Peterrific Collection. The collection includes video clips from the series, as well as lesson plans and take-home activities to help teachers, students, and families explore four key areas of arts education: dance, drama, music, and visual arts.
