Kids Cozy Up to Great TV This Winter with TBN's Smile of a Child Children's TV Network
December 8, 2009
LOS ANGELES, (christiansunite.com) -- Smile of a Child children's TV network (SMILE) pours the love of God into the hearts and lives of children with its exciting new winter programming. SMILE is an extension of the Trinity Broadcasting Network's (TBN) faith-based network, a favorite with American audiences and millions of viewers across six continents.
Many new SMILE programs began airing earlier this winter season, and others are already underway. Irresistible shows that are sure to capture a child's imagination include The Slug and Ant Show. Slug and Ant are best friends who love to hang out, explore, and tell others about what it means to have God in their lives.
"Television is the perfect tool for making moral teachings fun and accessible for kids," says Brenda Rossman, programming director for TBN's Smile of a Child children's TV network. "Our new winter programs provide a place where children can cozy up and feel safe; a place where they can have fun while learning about God."
In The Fantasic World, a mysterious box transports young Molly Pickens to a fading land. But only a love like Jesus's can save Molly and her new home from unhappiness. A motley assortment of friends helps Molly in her attempts to save the Fantastic World.
Go Fish: Let's Sing is a brand new sing-along special. The Go Fish guys continue their mission of making great music for kids that won't drive parents bonkers! A wonderful program to just watch or for learning songs, children will enjoy singing "The Ten Commandment Boogie," "The Bible Book Bop," "Stories," and other Go Fish favorites.
But SMILE is not just for kids. The whole family will enjoy the comedic adventures of three New Zealand friends who get the musical break of a lifetime in SMILE's brand new The Lads TV. When the friends' band -- The Lads -- is signed by a music industry legend, a mysterious foe begins to sabotage all their efforts to become successful.
Smile of a Child children's TV network was born Christmas Eve, 2005, out of the Smile of a Child Ministry -- a vehicle founded to reach out to children throughout the world. The ministry began by providing dolls to poverty-stricken kids in Haiti, and now offers toys -- as well as medical care -- to children the world over. And today, the powerful medium of television provides a different kind of nurturing to children through entertaining TV programming.
"SMILE is constructive and unique kids' television," says Rossman. "They get spiritual instruction that will bear fruit today and for the rest of their lives."
Smile of a Child children's TV network offers quality Christian programming that is always free of violence and crude humor. The SMILE network helps children develop positive social and spiritual skills. For more on SMILE network programming, go to www.smileofachildtv.org.
