My 2 and 3 year olds Love Sid! This is such a great Podcast and great resource in helping me explain things to my very curious children.
As a stay at home Dad, I'm always trying to find interesting activities to do with my preschooler. This podcast (as well as the Sid The Science Kid Show) has sparked genuine scientific interest in my child and has provided some awesome learning opportunities! It's perfect for teachers, parents and kids alike - and it reminds me that curiosity is always contagious. We never miss an episode!
