SUPER WHY is a 3-D animated adventure series, produced by the creators of Blue's Clues, designed to provide children ages 3 to 6 with the critical skills they need to read (and love to read!).
The show is based on the adventures of four fairytale friends who live in Storybrook Village: Whyatt Beanstalk, Jack's younger brother; Red, from Little Red Riding Hood; Pig, from the Three Little Pigs; and Princess, from The Princess and the Pea. In each episode, they transform into their superhero alter egos, the Super Readers, and literally fly inside books using the power of literacy to solve problems. All the while they engage a fifth superhero, Super You, who is actually the viewer.
For ages 3-6.
In every episode, one of the friends encounters a problem with another Storybrook Village character (For instance, Jill from the Jack and Jill rhyme is not being nice). As in real life, the problems require preschool social skills to resolve.
SUPER WHY aims to help young children learn key reading skills as identified by the National Reading Panel, including alphabet skills, word families, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary.
