Young children today (and their parents) have a plethora of programs to choose from. I find myself watching my kids' programs more today than I did when I was a kid myself. That's probably because kids like me who were born in the mid-70s had two solid options...and they weren't on at all hours of the day.
Fast forward about 30 years and there are more programs on television today that I can count. Fortunately, A revival of The Electric Company found its way back to television in 2009, and Sesame Street...well, it's in its 40th season and now seen in more than 140 countries around the world.
Staples aside, I consider myself a pretty good judge of character when it comes to kids' television - particularly for the wee ones. Here is my top five list.
5. Super Why!
3. Sid the Science Kid
4. Curious George
5. Little Einsteins
