As ambassadors for NCircle Entertainment we look forward to sharing with our readers educational and engaging entertainment for children as well as offering giveaways.
Octonauts is an animated show that has become a family favorite. It follows the adventures of a team of animated heroes who have a theme of Explore, Rescue and Protect. Each member of the team is a different animal that has their own personalities and skills to help them achieve their mission as they are led by the brave polar bear Captain Barnacles. At the end of each episode is a brief “Creature Report” where children learn about animals through music and a clip of unique creatures.
Recently, Calling All Sharks has been released perfectly timed with the celebration of Shark Week! The DVD has a run time of 70 minutes and follows along six adventures involving these diverse creatures. The DVD includes: Cookiecutter Sharks, Lost Lemon Shark, Dwarf Lantern Shark, Giant Jelly, Hungry Pilot Fish, and Porcupine Puffer.
Octonauts Calling All Sharks
is Perfect for Shark Week!
Appreciation of Sharks
While most of us associate the word Sharks with Jaws, there are so many varieties. When my children first became exposed to sharks on Octonauts, I was surprised to learn how many different types of sharks exist. Within Calling All Sharks, your children will learn about lesser known sharks like the Lemon Shark. Who knew sharks could have yellow skin? Octonauts do and present information about this aquatic creature in an engaging manner.
Introduces the Mystery of Sharks
As much as we know about sharks, there is so much that is a mystery. We tend to associate them as being large, but through Octonauts children learn about the smallest shark which is the Dwarf Lantern Shark. This elusive creature is not commonly seen. In fact, in the show they acknowledge how it was recently found. The show promotes a love of nature and understanding how the ocean is an unraveling mystery.
Encourages Problem Solving
In each episode, the Octonauts face an obstacle. Through their knowledge, skills and teamwork they collaborate to find solutions. Whether it is an ill shark or helping another creature, Octonauts know that there is an answer present. Children are watching positive model behaviors when watching this show!
