Dinosaur Train on PBS - Spooktacular Episode "Night Train" and Costumes

DINOSAUR TRAIN ON PBS  
Starting October 25, PBS KIDS will offer a spooktacular lineup of Halloween-themed episodes, including DINOSAUR TRAIN –"Night Train" in which Dad, Buddy and Tiny take a special ride on the Dinosaur Train at night, learning about animals that are active after dark, culminating at the Big Pond for a nature walk under the full moon.   Educational component: Many animals are most active at night, usually as a means to avoid detection by predators or to aid in hunting (depending on the animal). This lifestyle may have applied to some dinosaurs as well, including Troodon.
There’s also a great music video for the Halloween episode at the following link: Dinosaur Train Halloween Music Video
