Popular PBS KIDS Series SUPER WHY! Helps Children Build Reading Skills

Super WHY!: Triple Feature: Humpty Dumpty, Hansel & Gretel, and Jack and the Beanstalk DVD

My girls are huge fans of Super Why!.  This show along with many of the other wonderful PBS Kids programming they watch each day has truly helped them develop their verbal and reading skills.  Super Why! especially has been key in teaching the girls letter sounds, spelling words, and back in the day their ABC's with the catchy ABC song that is sung in each episode.  Are your little one's fans of Super Why!?  If so, then you will want to pick up the new Super Why!: Triple Feature DVD which arrives on DVD today.  Even though these three titles are previous releases from PBS Distribution, I love that they are finally on one disc.  This makes traveling with kids easier as you don't have to lug around a handful of DVDs.  Or, if kids are staying at the grandparents, you only have to pack one DVD to keep the little ones entertained, while also learning at the same time.

My girls were excited to watch the 10 fun-filled episodes that make up this approx. 280 minute Super Why! DVD collection.  They loved all the fairy tales shared, especially Humpty Dumpty and Cinderella.  And, like all their other Super Why! DVDs, they continue to ask to watch this new DVD release, as they are so much fun to watch.  My girls love running up to me and saying I know how to spell this word and then start spelling it.  I ask where they learned how to spell it and they shout Super Why!, of course! :-)  

At only $9.99 for this Super Why! triple feature DVD collection, you can't go wrong for the price, as it will offer hours of viewing enjoyment for your little ones, that they will love watching time and again.  And, with Easter fast approaching, this DVD would make for a great addition to their Easter baskets.
