    Hello and Happy New Year!

    Just to let you know about a new series starting on Cbeebies on January 9th 2010. Its called Driver Dan's Story Train. It is aimed at 2-6 year olds and encourages reading and literacy. It would be good to hear your thoughts on the show if you tune in. Here's the info:

    Launching on CBeebies this January 2010, “Driver Dan’s Story Train” is a CGI animated/live-action series that welcomes its young audience aboard The Story Train, with its cast of loveable new animated friends, led by the grown-up lion, Driver Dan.

    The series features a colourful and inquisitive group of 3D animated animal characters of pre-school age, who love stories and adventure. Each full of personality and individuality, the animals join the ‘grown-up’ lion, Driver Dan, on his Story Train as they play games, have adventures, solve puzzles and find out that there is a book for absolutely every occasion.

    “Driver Dan’s Story Train” presents children with a totally immersive and interactive storytelling experience – from the intimate moments of choosing a book, to discovering the joys of a story as it unfolds, through listening, reading and participating. “Driver Dan’s Story Train” therefore helps promote pre-literacy development and awareness while conveying the message that books are fun and comforting. It does not require children to have a particular level of knowledge of the alphabet or numeracy to be able to engage in the series and comprehend the content. The series has also been developed for multi-platform applications which will include an online and interactive website.

    Choosing, telling, sharing, listening, remembering… this new series captures all the magic of storybooks and storytelling.
