Reading is power and Super WHY! helps kids learn the fundamentals of reading through interactive storybook adventures!
When I was little my parent’s would bring me to work with them everyday, they’d set me up in the office of our family business with a box of toys and a little black and white TV. Of course at work we didn’t have cable so I’d only get a handful of local chanels, one of them being PBS. Many of my favorite shows were on PBS. Now my children get to enjoy shows on PBS. One of their favorites is Super Why. This is another one of those shows that the song gets stuck in my head. My kids were pretty excited to see a new Super Why DVD called Super WHY!: Around the World Adventure.
- 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?
In these stories kids learn about geography, letters, and vocabulary. Kids also investigate the alphabet, practice spelling, use words, and use the power to read to change the story!
As I’ve said before, I prefer the cartoons that are teaching my children something instead of just entertaining them. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of adorable movies that are just entertaining but it is nice that some cartoons are also teaching kids at the same time. With my oldest child preparing for Kindgergaten this year it is nice that Super Why is expanding his vocabulary and helping him remember his letters.
Whether you’ve seen Super Why before, never heard of it, looking for something new, or just enjoy PBS, Super Why Around the World Adventure DVD is a great show to add to your movie collection. Besides I think anytime my kids have a chance to learn a little something extra is a plus in my book.
Buy: You can buy Super WHY Around the World Adventure for just $12.99 at Shop PBS.
