Cosmo Boy got a Carmen Sandiego DVD for Christmas. Remember Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? I think it was a PBS show. Anyway, every evening this week he and Curious Girl have begged me to let them watch Carmen Sandiego!
As a family we usually watch The Amazing Race on Sunday nights, but they are in between seasons. We get out a world map or put together a world map puzzle, and track where the players are traveling. Then we watch whatever they do in the country – usually related to the local culture. Well, Carmen Sandiego is a lot like that!
Cosmo boy has been into Greek and Roman mythology. In fact, his birthday party had a Percy Jackson style theme with demi gods and Roman inspired games. He just informed me that Athens has a golden statue of Athena 🙂
On our 1-5 rating, we rate this DVD a 5. I need to look for the computer game!
