We are always looking for new shows that the kids will love. It’s something we really like looking at together as a family. We hold our own little viewing parties when we can!!
Bookaboo, the rockin’ new Amazon Original Kids Series, “takes to the stage” on Prime VideoFriday, October 28 exclusively for Prime members via the Amazon Video app for TVs; connected devices, including Fire TV, mobile devices; and online!!! Prime members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing.
Already a full-fledged international hit, the series for preschool-aged children celebrates the fun and benefits of adults and children reading together. Bookaboo inventively combines puppetry, live action and CGI animation. It’s really an awesome mix that keeps a child’s interest throughout the entire episode.
The series follows Bookaboo as he tours the globe with his bandmates Paws and Growler, playing drums to packed stadiums of adoring fans. There’s only one hitch – Bookaboo just can’t play without a story a day! The pup finds creative ways to avoid performing, leading to laugh-out-loud comedy sketches and silly songs.
To empower Bookaboo to return to the stage, a famous face appears in each episode to share a favorite story. The picture book that the celebrity guest brings in the special “bookabag” is brought to vibrant life through animation and an interactive, energetic reading that restores Bookaboo’s “bojo.”
Among the series special guests are Paula Abdul (American Idol), Rachelle Lefevre(Twilight), Molly Parker (House of Cards), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Emily Van Camp (Captain America: The Winter Soldier),Selma Blair (Legally Blonde), Michael Sheen (The Queen), Guillermo Diaz (Scandal), WWE Wrestler Adam Copeland, NASA Astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield, and NFL player Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bookaboo, the latest addition to Amazon’s award-winning preschool programming slate, is created by Lucy Goodman, Founder of Happy Films, and produced by Happy Films and Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad, Annedroids). Crazy list, so you just know that this is a great, creative, and entertaining show!!!
