Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum –PBS KIDS announced that the new animated series XAVIER RIDDLE AND THE SECRET MUSEUM will premiere on Monday, November 11, 2019. Based on the children’s book series Ordinary People Change the World by New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos, the series will introduce kids to inspiring historical figures and the character virtues that helped them succeed. The series is produced by 9 Story Media Group’s award-winning animation studio Brown Bag Films, and will debut nationwide on WHUT and WHUT KIDS 24/7 channel and WHUT KIDS digital platforms available via www.whut.org
XAVIER RIDDLE AND THE SECRET MUSEUM takes a fresh and accessible approach to teach kids ages 4-7 about important historical figures and the experiences that shaped their lives while exploring social-emotional concepts and character traits such as courage, resilience, and setting and accomplishing goals. Each episode is designed to help young viewers make the connection between the attributes that made each historical figure a hero and those same qualities within themselves, helping them to recognize their unlimited potential. From an inspirational encounter with a young Marie Curie, who follows her dreams no matter what, to learning from a school-aged Harriet Tubman, who models courage and bravely moves forward even when she is scared, the series will help kids relate to seemingly larger-than-life individuals. Other historical figures to be featured include Alexander Hamilton, Susan B. Anthony, Maya Angelou and more.
