THREE NEW LITERACY-PACKED SUPER WHY EPISODES COME TO DVD IN

“SUPER WHY: AROUND THE WORLD ADVENTURE”

Available June 19, 2012

The new DVD includes:

Around the World Adventure – With the help of their teacher, Whyatt and his friends contact a girl from another school over the computer, but they wonder where she lives. The Super Readers along with Woofster take a trip around the world with a wacky explorer named Wobblebottom, who is on the hunt for his friend Sophie. Will they be able to help Wobblebottom find his friend, or will they be destined to “Wobble” around the globe indefinitely?

Educational Objectives – Preschoolers learn about geography; use the alphabet to identify the letters R, O, P, E; practice spelling; and discover the meaning of the word “quicksand.”

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 answers, the Super Readers and their canine companion soar into the book, “Naila and the Magic Map,” to explore the world of ancient Egypt. Will they be able to help Naila unravel the mysterious code that unlocks the mystery of the treasure?

Educational Objectives – Young viewers learn about Egypt; use the alphabet; rhyme with ISH words; and discover the meaning of the word “sphinx.”

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 and Woofster jump into the tale, “Jasper’s Cowboy Wish,” and make the acquaintance of a cowpoke named Jasper 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 become a hero…or will this be his last roundup?

Educational Objectives – Preschoolers explore the Old West; sing the alphabet; practice the magic of spelling; and learn the meaning of the word “saddle.”

The DVD also features bonus materials, including interactive games, music videos, printable activity and coloring pages, as well as valuable resources for parents to use with their budding super readers at home.

“Around the World Adventure” and “Naila and the Magic Map,” will premiere during the special “SUPER WHY Around the World Adventure” on-air eventJune 15 on PBS KIDS.  This is a great way to preview the shows to see if you want to purchase the DVD.

If you DO decided to purchase the DVD it is currently available from Shop PBS for $12.99.

My kids love Super Why.  And I love that they love Super Why:)  A TV show that teaches the fundamentals of reading?  Yes, please.  My children love the adventures and superheroes and I, of course, love the potential learning aspect.  Super Why shows are not going to teach your children to read, but they will help enhance their learning.  Essentially they are learning and they might not even realize it! This new DVD is Super Why goodness.  Road trip this summer?  I highly recommend purchasing a copy for a little entertainment on the road!

Not familiar with Super Why?

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. The special DVD compilation is the first to feature Woofster, the new book-loving puppy pal with Dictionary Power, who made his tail-wagging debut on the popular series in fall 2011.

I received the above mentioned product for review purposes, all opinions are my own.
