Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Have you recently tried looking on Netflix? She has an all new series! In her all new Netflix series, this globetrotting thief-turned-hero explores geography, history, and culture as she works to take down V.I.L.E and their dastardly plans.
Who is Carmen Sandiego? The answer to that question is stated within the first two episodes on Netflix. We get her history and why she has become a hero instead of a villain. There were just some lines that Black Sheep would not cross.
Historically, Carmen Sandiego was introduced in 1985, starring in video games and TV shows. Like the new series, Carmen was a protector of cultural artifacts, stealing from those who would rob the world of their beauty and historical significance. She then returns the artifacts to their homes so that the world may continue to enjoy them.
In honor of this new series hitting Netflix, hmhco.com has released several free printables featuring games, puzzles, and fun geography quizzes to help kids learn and enjoy the new series.
As students follow the story of this strong Latina hero, they learn about geography, history, and diversity. Carmen’s adventures are an excellent way to enable discussions around social-emotional learning, cultural awareness, and empathy.
To download these amazing educational printables head to INSPIRE YOUR CARMEN CREW and download the PDFs. Some can be over 50mb due to the awesome work that has been put into these activities.

Episodes 1 and 2 from Season 2:

This Collection of Puppy Dog Pals episodes is fantastic. Like always, these little pups, Bingo and Rolly, are looking to help others, make new friends, and learn all while having wonderful adventures. I adore these pups because they are cute, teaching balls of fluff. They always have a positive outlook even when things get tough. It really helps teach their audience to never give up and do so with a song.
With the new songs also comes a new puppy, Keia. This puppy is full of energy, love, and excitement. She makes friends as fast as one can blink. She also gets herself into a little trouble with her need to play. But Keia loves her owner, loves her friends, and wants to help them; even if it means finding a mythical unicorn. Her can do attitude is a perfect match for Bingo and Rolly..
I would recommend Playtime with Puppy Dog Pals to any family with little ones. The episodes are short enough and the characters are cute and fun enough that most will sit and watch at least one without a problem.

Illumination and Universal Pictures have come together to make a new movie of Dr. Suess’s The Grinch, released today Digitally and will be released on 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD February 3rd. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!
We all know the story. of the Grinch who stole Christmas, or at least attempted too. Where he sneaks into town disguised as Santa, takes all the Who’s Christmasy items and leaves them with nothing but crumbs. However, when the theft did not stop Christmas from coming, he learns that kindness and love are what make Christmas great.
This new release of The Grinch is a little more heartwarming and a lot more fun than past editions. With wonderful characters and graphics, which we would expect from Illumination, the whole movie is a joy to watch.
Unlike movies in the past, this Grinch doesn’t hide from the Who town; granted he would love to avoid it. However, when the need for food is dire, he does leave his rocky tower. He strolls around town shopping for food all the while hating the Whos. In one scene he even destroys a child’s snowwho, reasserting the fact that he is “A Mean One.” I mean just look at that face! (see Image above) He gets joy from other Who’s misfortune. His heart is definitely two sizes too small.
Paired with the Grinch’s detain for Christmas is a little girl named Cindy Lou Who that loves Christmas a lot. The classic states that Cindy Lou is no more than two, but I believe she is at least 7 or 8 in this film, Her whole goal in the movie is to ask Santa to make her mom happy. So in an effort to talk to Santa, she sets a trap to capture the Jolly old man.
Cindy’s desire to make someone else happy is what starts The Grinch on a new path to discovering the true meaning of Christmas. He starts to learn that kindness and love are the most important things of all. I would also like to state that her ability to forgive is amazing. The Grinch not only lies to Cindy by pretending to be Santa, he steals every Christmas item the whole town owns. But instead of letting her heart shrink and become angry at the Grinch, Cindy Lou invites him to dinner and forgives him. As I have stated before…absolutely heartwarming.
I love this remake. The Characters are fun, The Grinch is well rounded, and the meaning is not lost. Illuminations The Grinch will be a Christmas movie my whole family will watch every year.
Along with The Grinch, the movie also comes with 3 new mini movies featuring everyone’s favorite Minions and The Grinch’s dog Max. I will admit, when I got the Blu-ray to review, I went straight to the mini movies first.
Yellow is the new Black – Making fun of the TV series Orange is the New Black, Yellow is the new Black follows two minions during their time in prison and their brief moment of freedom during their escape. From rubber duckies to circus acts, the Minions make their escape a cute and fun adventure.
Dog Days of Winter – When the Grinch catches a nasty cold, it is up to Max to bring him his favorite warm tea. However, there is no more left in the house. So with love for the Grinch, Max makes his way through a cold winter storm to go to town to buy more tea. With avalanches, crazy birds, and mean shop owners, Max’s trip is anything but easy.
Santa’s Little Helpers – We all know that Minions want to be helpful, they just tend to mess up…sometimes rather badly. However, in Santa’s Little Helpers, they may have just found a helpful task worthy of three little minions, and it isn’t cleaning up after reindeer.
All three of these mini movies are hilarious to watch and they are a great addition to the collection. Another Win for Illumination and us fans!
To get a copy of the Grinch head to Amazon.com and purchase the Digital copy today. It will also be available of 4K, Blu-Ray and DVD February 3rd.
