Join First Lady Jill Biden & PBS KIDS for Holiday Fun at the White House

PBS KIDS joined First Lady Jill Biden to kick-off the holiday season at the White House, and families across the country are invited to join in the celebrations with a trio of festive videos streaming free on PBS KIDS.

A special behind-the-scenes tour with the First Lady and D.C. Army National Guard Captain Maryanne V. Harrell and her family, who visit the decorated rooms throughout the White House, meeting favorite friends – including the beloved Kratt Brothers of Wild Kratts, fan-favorites Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the intrepid Molly of Molly of Denali, everyone’s favorite aardvark from the hit series Arthur, and vibrant Rosita of Sesame Street – at each stop is now available on PBS KIDS. 

A read-along with Dr. Biden of “Winter is Here” (HarperCollins) by Caldecott Medalist and Newbery Honor author Kevin Henkes and illustrator Laura Dronzek, celebrating the sights, sounds, and smells of the season, is also available.

In addition, an engaging DONKEY HODIE sing-along performance, featuring Donkey Hodie, Grampy Hodie, and Purple Panda from the popular series from Fred Rogers Productions and Spiffy Pictures, will stream free beginning December 18.

All three videos will be available to stream free on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video app (available on mobile and connected-TV devices), Facebook, and YouTube.
