I grew up reading Richard Scarry books and I love reading them to my kids as well! Now, Richard Scarry has come to life in the all new cartoon episodes called “Busytown Mysteries.”  These new cartoon episodes air on CBS weekend mornings.  Check out the TV Schedule for more information.  Each half-hour program includes two 11-minutes stories per episode.  Thanks to One2One Network, I had the opportunity to check out “Busytown Mysteries” myself!  The program is adorable and my kids loved watching it.  Plus the website has tons of fun activities for kids and in my opinion is parent-approved!

Did you know that over 150 million copies of Richard Scarry’s books have been sold and translated into 30 languages over the past 40 years?  Wow!!   The “Busytown Mysteries” series follows the lives of the most beloved Scarry characters, lead by Huckle Cat and Lowly Worm, as they solve the many every day mysteries of Busytown. Where is Mr. Frumble’s pickle car? The Busytown kids will find out! How can they help a lost parrot find its owner? Leave it to Huckle and friends to solve the case! Busytown Mysteries engages children with fun storylines and lovable characters, while introducing them to deductive reasoning skills. Who? What? When? Where? Why?


Busytown also entertains and educates fans at home with the fun, interactive website BusytownMysteries.com where kids can explore different neighborhoods in Busytown, interact with the Busytown characters and play 14 games and activities designed for preschoolers, including interactive games, a Fan Club and “My First Email,” which lets little ones email their progress to pre-approved friends and family addresses.

I received a screener copy of “Busytown Mysteries” from One2One Network for the purpose of this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are my own.
