Netflix Series - Who Was Blog Tour!

Netflix recently released a television show based off the Who Was Books from Penguin Random House. These books are a great way to introduce famous people from history to young readers. You can read the book then watch the corresponding episode for extra enrichment. Our 1st grader is just about the right age for this book series and we were excited to receive two in the series - Isaac Newton + Amelia Earhart. We recently sat down and watched episode 4 on Netflix which features both of these books. My son thought it was great fun and giggled through out. The show is a bit goofy but it kept his attention and he actually learned quite a bit about each person by the end. That's a win for me!

Here is a trailer for the show!
