Eight-year-old Arthur the aardvark has four adventures in this new DVD, available tomorrow, August 12, 2014. This is the perfect back-to-school treat, as Arthur and his friends find out that a candy bar may not be as appetizing as they thought, learn how to handle a big test without getting too stressed out, and work hard to be better at baseball. And is “Brain’s Biggest Blunder” trying to turn Buster into a math whiz? The DVD has printable coloring pages and activities.

I have a copy to give away! Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Arthur in the subject line and tell me your favorite part of school. Don’t forget your address! (US addresses only.) I’ll pick a winner at random on August 16. Good luck!

    My kids loved “Arthur” when they were younger! It has great diversity of characters and so many complex issues addressed in sensitive, respectful ways. They got to meet Marc Brown at our local library a few years ago, and he was the nicest guy! (We love him and David Shannon, in particular, because they are responsive to their child readers.) The kids have moved on from Arthur and friends, but I am glad they are still making new DVDs! Here is their picture:

      I love the photo! Thanks for sharing.
