THREE NEW LITERACY-PACKED SUPER WHY EPISODES COME TO DVD IN
“SUPER WHY: AROUND THE WORLD ADVENTURE”
"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. The new title also features two episodes, “Around the World Adventure” and “Naila and the Magic Map,” which premiered during the special “SUPER WHY Around the World Adventure” on-air event, June 15 on PBS KIDS. The “AROUND THE WORLD ADVENTURE” DVD made its debut June 19, 2012.
In addition to its trio of fun- and learning-packed episodes, the “SUPER WHY: AROUND THE WORLD ADVENTURE” DVD 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."
