- New preschool series helps children to better understand their emotions
- Starring Yannick Bisson of CBCâ€™s hit series Murdoch Mysteries
Kidsâ€™ CBC presents a new preschool series about a different kind of superhero with THE ADVENTURES OF NAPKIN MAN! airing Monday to Friday at 9:30 a.m. (10 NT) beginning Dec. 30. Each episode takes children inside the classroom of fun-loving and compassionate preschool teacher Mr. Anthony, played by Yannick Bisson of CBCâ€™s hit primetime series Murdoch Mysteries. Featuring a mix of live action and animation, children are taken on fun-filled adventures which help them to better understand and manage their feelings.
Using his special pen, Mr. Anthony draws Napkin Man, a superhero who leaps off the napkin and magically comes to life in an animated world. As the children look on, Napkin Man (voiced by Bisson) and his friends play out a story that sheds light on the emotional issue at hand. Through comedy and catchy original music, children learn to identify and label emotions, recognize the physiological symptoms associated with different emotions, develop fun and easy strategies to calm down and feel better, while discovering creative ways to solve problems that lead to negative emotions.
Also on Kidsâ€™ CBC this winter are the engaging multiplatform series, RUBY SKYE P.I. and TIME TREMORS. Beginning Dec. 21,, get on the case Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. (8 PST/9:30 NT) with cross-platform series RUBY SKYE P.I., following amateur detective Ruby Skye as she finds her way into the middle of the most baffling mysteries.
