We love PBS in our Home. As the most prominent provider of Television Programs to the U.S., they have an incredible list of shows! One of them that we’ve had fun watching is Super Why!, a CGI Animated show that brings viewers into Storybook Village where they solve ‘super big problems’ by becoming “Super Readers”!
All New Episodes are premiering January 16th – 19th on PBS Kids, so check your local listings! As a huge supporter of Children’s Literacy, having a show that is literacy powered is wonderful! Check out some of the All New Episodes coming up!
- Super WHY and Jasper’s Cowboy Wish – January 16: 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 named Jasper who’s desperate to become a rompin’ stompin’ cowboy if only he could get the hang of it! Will Jasper be a hero…or will this be his last roundup?
- Super WHY and Baby Dino’s Big Discovery – January 17: ROAR! Pig invited his friends over to play dinosaurs, but Whyatt can’t figure out which toy dinosaur he has. So he super readers soar into Baby Dino’s Big Discovery where they lend a hand to a baby dinosaur searching for his mommy. They’ll need to look closely to figure out what kind of dinosaur Baby Dino is…and be careful to avoid being eaten while they do!
- Super WHY and Princess Gwennie Saves the Day – January 18: Princess Pea is feeling dramatic (as usual) and she and Red are staging a play. Princess is pretending she’s a queen but Red doesn’t know what to be! The super readers fly into the story of a princess with a silly sense of humor and a big job to do. They help Gwennie use her talents to save the day, and Red discovers her own special gifts.
- Super WHY and The Great Robot Race – January 19: Whyatt and Woofster want to win the porridge race, but the bowl of breakfast cereal keeps falling off the puppy’s back. This is a super MESSY problem! The reading friends visit The Great Robot Race and encounter a boy named Bradbury who is determined to help his robo-doggie to win a race too! Both Bradbury and the super readers will have to use a little creative problem solving to help robo-doggie zoom to the head of the pack!
The show is generally for pre-school aged children, but it doesn’t hurt to start early with our toddlers, showing them the gift of words and how they create stories is priceless.
Super Why! also has a very interactive webpage with games, coloring pages, videos and even a Rock & Read Jukebox!
