Have you seen this DVD that features the PBS KIDS' popular Super Why series called "The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Other Fairytale Adventures?" If not, you and your kids are missing out!
The four reading-powered adventures on this DVD not only help kids with critical skills they need in order to learn to read, but also helps to provide them with important life lessons, which is something I love in a kid's show. Two of the lessons kids will take away after watching these stories are the importance of good manners and that in order to learn a new skill, you need to be persistent and keep trying no matter what.
The four stories included are "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," "The Tortoise and the Hare," "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Elves and the Shoemaker." In "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," Red's grandmother won't let her into the kitchen to have some red velvet cake, and she doesn't know why. In order to find the answer to her dilemma, the Super Readers jump into the book. After watching a troll stop all three goats from crossing his bridge, the answer emerges and the Super Readers also jump into the story, "The Tortoise and the Hare!" In this episode, the Super Readers spell words G-O and B-E-L-L and learn that participating in a contest isn't always about winning, it's also important to enjoy the game.
