Spanish PBS Kids Show 'Noah Comprende'

I found an online resource for kids on the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) that might be of interest to children interested in learning Spanish, Following is a description from their website

NOAH COMPRENDE, a production of THIRTEEN for WNET, is a web-original series about a 9-year-old boy visiting his grandmother in a community where no one speaks English. Noah is trying to learn Spanish, but sometimes gets it wrong. In each animated video, a misunderstanding launches a comic adventure for Noah and his pet mouse Pequeño. With Pequeño’s help, Noah always manages to solve the problems he’s created, learning Spanish in the process. Although kids – like Noah –may not understand the Spanish dialogue, they can comprehend the story told through rich visual storytelling. Each video features opportunities for kids to roll their cursor over objects on the screen to hear the Spanish translation. Three different vocabulary-driven, arcade-style games also reinforce learning, as leveling and racing against the clock encourage multiple plays and repeated exposure to vocabulary. Another game, “How Do You Say…?,” helps kids learn common expressions in Spanish, such as greetings and phrases to say in a restaurant. Focused on Spanish language acquisition, NOAH COMPRENDE is based on the educational concept that kids learn language most effectively when they can put it into meaningful context.
Though directed to kids, I found it an entertaining alternative to my regular study materials.
