The first superhero series that helps children ages 3-6 learn to read through interactive storybook adventures makes its DVD debut when SUPER WHY! Jack and the Beanstalk & Other Fairytale Adventures arrives on July 28, 2009 from Out of the Blue Enterprises, PBS KIDS and Paramount Home Entertainment. “Super Why!” has received the Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award and National Parenting Center Seal of Approval and was nominated for an Emmy® for Outstanding Preschool Children’s Series. Each episode begins behind the bookshelves of a library where four fairytale friends overcome a dilemma by looking…in a book! The friends turn into a team of literacy-powered super heroes to solve the problem and save the day while teaching children core reading fundamentals.
The SUPER WHY! Jack and the Beanstalk & Other Fairytale Adventures DVD includes four episodes exploring classic fairytales with a modern twist. Each episode contains multiple adventures that help children find answers to everyday preschool challenges. As soon as a problem arises, Whyatt calls his friends to the Book Club, where they transform into reading-powered superheroes: Alpha Pig with Alphabet Power, Wonder Red with Word Power, Princess Presto with Spelling Power, Super Why with the Power to Read and Super YOU with the Power to Help. The home viewer is the superhero sidekick, who is encouraged and empowered to participate in the reading adventure by playing research-based literacy games. The DVD also includes Interactive Games, Music Videos and Coloring Pages and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.99.
