Product Description

Super WHY!: Around the World Adventure includes: Around the World Adventure; Naila and the Magic Map; and Jasper's Cowboy Wish.

Amazon.com

Designed to encourage reading comprehension skills, this computer-animated PBS Kids series centers on a more-relatable-than-usual superhero. In his civilian guise, Whyatt is an ordinary boy who lives in Storybrook Village. His alter ego, Super Why, uses reading power to solve mysteries alongside his friends, three Super Readers with fairy-tale-inspired personas: Alpha Pig (alphabet power), Wonder Red (word power), and Princess Presto (spelling power). His canine companion, Puppy, also gets into the act when he transforms into Woofster (dictionary power). With their outsized heads and doll-like eyes, they look like a cross between the cast of The Family Guy and The Powerpuff Girls. As a team, they ride flying machines that allow them to enter books and interact with the characters. These literary experiences teach them how to deal with similar situations at home, and when they get into a jam, they spell out words to create helpful tools, like the R-O-P-E they use to escape a pool of quicksand. In these season-two episodes, the gang circumnavigates the globe to find the home of a long-distance friend ("Around the World Adventure"), search for hidden treasure in Egypt ("Naila and the Magic Map"), and teach a young man how to be a cowboy ("Jasper's Cowboy Wish"). Most of the lessons are easy to follow, though a multisyllable word like hieroglyphics may prove too advanced for some preschoolers (the Super Readers clearly define it as a pictorial language). Extra features offer three music videos plus DVD-ROM games and printable coloring pages. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

My son loves Super Why!
Kailia Gandy
I love how the show encourages thinking about words and what makes sense to say or do in a story.

Purchased for my 3 year old who got a gift card to Amazon for Christmas and he actually picked out this DVD since he loves Super Why. I'm really pleased with this DVD as it's over 2 hours long, whereas so many tv episode dvd's are much shorter and it's disappointing to the kids. Very happy with this purchase and quite a value! I don't mind him watching this show either, he's learning his sounds and I don't feel like it's garbage tv. Thanks, PBS!

There are so many wonderful things to say about this DVD. First, you have the element of imagination as Whyatt and his friends transform from mere mortals into their super hero personas. They fly into books to look for the answers to the questions that will solve their problems. In addition, the show is interactive, with the characters addressing the audience and taking your child on the adventure with them. Your child will enjoy singing along and solving problems alongside the Super Readers, while learning important skills like identifying letters, spelling, and reading comprehension. As a writer, I love how Super Why! can change the story with his power to read. That helps kids realize the power of words.

Each episode opens with a summary of what the viewer will learn, so parents can see what will be focused on and supplement their child's learning. Extra features include fun song videos, four PC games, and coloring pages.

Super Why!: Around the World Adventure DVD is a great way to get your kids ready to read!

I bought this for my twins (2yrs old) to watch because of the music. After about 5 days I noticed that they were saying there ABC's and pretending ALOT more than usual. They have now hit a Vocabulary EXPLOSION!!! I know own all seasons of SUPER WHY! For a dad to see his kids learning and having fun, that is AWESOME!!! I highly recommend Super Why to parents with kiddos!

Always fun and educational, my son adores Super Why. We are still trying to get used to Wolfy being on the show but it is quite useful to have him around when there is a word being used that the kids don't understand. Either way, I highly recommend this dvd.

My 22 month-old loves SuperWhy. He has learned so much from this show and is one of the few programs that we allow him to watch.
