Super Why is my 2.5 year old’s favorite show. She loves it! Now, don’t get me wrong, my 4 year old loves this show too, but my 2.5 year old is glued to the TV when it comes on. And I am totally OK with that because her letter recognition has been through the roof since she started watching it. One of the cutest things is hearing her yell “Lorie!” when Whyatt says “Say your name.” She gets so excited that he asks her who she is. We have watched nearly every episode. Our household actually spun in to a tailspin a while back when the PBS Kids schedule changed and Super Why was moved to a time that we were unable to watch it. I was so glad to have Super Why DVDs then – and a new one is coming out!
On August 11th, Super Why: Cinderella and Other Fairytale Adventures will be out on DVD from PBS Kids! This DVD contains five Super Why episodes and my girls love it. The day it arrived we had to put it on in the car while we ran errands – and it hasn’t been taken out since! We even got an adorable Super Why T-Shirt that my 4 year old has been wearing non-stop. I know her sister can’t wait for that hand me down!
In the story “Cinderella,” the Super Readers help Cinderella get to the castle party to see the prince by spelling D-R-E-S-S and W-H-E-E-L. At the party, both Cinderella and Red learn an important lesson – to be themselves! In the story “Cinderella: The Prince’s Side of the Story,” the Super Readers jump into the book Cinderella: The Prince’s Side of the Story in order to help Red solve a problem – how to find her friend Little Boy Blue. As they watch the prince find clever ways to follow Cinderella after she leaves the castle because it’s almost midnight, the answer emerges.
In addition to learning fundamental reading skills in these five episodes, kids will also take away important life lessons such as learning to think creatively and appreciating where they’re from. Join the Super Readers for fun-filled learning adventures that will have young viewers practicing spelling, identifying letters and learning new words. “CINDERELLA AND OTHER FAIRYTALE ADVENTURES” will be available on DVD August 11, 2015. Pre-order your copy of this DVD here.
The “CINDERELLA AND OTHER FAIRYTALE ADVENTURES” DVD includes the following stories:
“Cinderella: The Prince’s Side of the Story”
Red and Little Boy Blue are playing some music together when Little Boy Blue suddenly disappears! This is just like when Cinderella left the ball without finishing her dance. To solve the mystery, Super Why and his friends soar into Cinderella’s fairytale once again, and this time they talk to the prince!
The super fun Storybrook Carnival is in town, and Princess Pea is enjoying lots of yummy treats until she gets a terrible tummy ache! When Goldilocks offers her some popcorn, Princess Pea knows she should refuse, but she really wants to eat just a little. The Super Readers fly into the story of Snow White as the wicked queen tempts the fairytale princess with that infamous apple. Will the Super Readers be able to stop Snow White from taking the bait before Snow White ends up with something much worse than a stomachache?
“The Prince and the Pauper”
Whyatt thinks his house is too loud while Princess Pea believes her home is too quiet! Would the friends be better off if they switched places? To look for a solution, Super Why and his friends encounter two friends just as they are about to switch houses. A prince on the farm and a pauper in a castle soon leads to chaos and confusion! Where will everyone be the happiest?
“The Boy Who Cried Wolf”
When Baby Joy says her first words, Whyatt is the only one around who hears her. The problem is that now he can’t convince anyone that she actually talked. The Super Readers fly into the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf to help that boy convince people that his wolf tale is true. Whyatt figures out a strategy for getting his family to believe that what he said – and Baby Joy said – really happened.
Red, who’s not a princess, is worried about fitting in at Sleeping Beauty’s princess party. The Super Readers leap into the book of Cinderella to see how she handled her own princess problem. When the clock strikes twelve, Red learns that she doesn’t need the help of a fairy godmother to feel good about herself.
