Summer Resources from PBS KIDS and GPB Education

As kids spend time outside the classroom this summer, GPB is releasing all-new content and resources to help keep them active and encourage exploration at home and outdoors with their favorite characters. As part of our annual summer learning initiative, we will air all-new specials and episodes, beginning in June, and will offer free digital resources below and at pbsparents.org/summer to make learning fun all summer long.
