SUPER WHY is a breakthrough preschool series from Out of the Blue Enterprises designed to help kids ages 3 to 6 with the critical skills they need to learn to read, as recommended by the National Reading Panel (alphabet, word families, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary). The standout, imagination-stimulating series focuses on the adventures of four fairytale friends who transform into reading-powered superheroes.
Super Why: Around the World Adventure comes with three education-packed episodes:
Around the World Adventure: With the help of their teacher, Whyatt and his friends have contacted a girl from another school over the computer, but they wonder where she lives. The super readers take a trip around the world with a wacky explorer name Wigglesbottom who is on the hunt for his friend Sophie. Will they be able to help Wigglesbottom find his friend, or will they be destined to travel the globe indefinitely?
Naila and the Magic Map: Pig and his friends are playing when they find what looks like an Egyptian treasure map, but they can’t make out the symbols! To search for some answers, the super readers soar into the book Naila and the Magic Map and explore the world of ancient Egypt. Will they be able to help Naila unravel the mysterious code that will unlock where the treasure lies?
Jasper’s Cowboy Wish: Howdy partner! Whyatt and his friends are playing cowboys, but Pig can’t join in because he doesn’t know what cowboys do. The super readers jump into the tale Jasper’s Cowboy Wish and make the acquaintance of a cowpoke who’s desperate to become a rompin’ stompin’ cowboy, if only he could get the hang of it! When Jasper must use his cowboy skills to save the day, will he be a hero…or will this be his last roundup?
One thing everyone in our family agrees on is our love of the Super Why program! My kids are entertained by the easy to follow and fun story lines and I love that it teaches them the fundamentals of reading from letter recognition to word sounds. My kids like that they are little superheros and I enjoy that these superheros solve problems by reading and helping others! So far from many of the programs that are targeted to children nowadays. I would highly recommend this movie, for it’s entertainment AND educational value!
Super Why:Around the World Adventure is available for purchase for $12.99 from the Shop PBS website.
