The power of friendship, adventure and reading could soon be coming to a city near you!

The popular Emmy-nominated preschool TV series Super WHY! recently announced dates for an upcoming live tour “Super WHY Live: You’ve Got the Power!” Written by the show’s creator Angela Santomero (also the creator of Blue’s Clues), the show features music produced by guitarist Jack Antonoff, of the Grammy Award-winning band fun. Kids (and parents too!) will love dancing and singing along with the cast of superhero characters plucked from the pages of classic storybook favorites, as they heroically take on challenges in the name of literature.

Watch Tonight: ‘The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About Christmas’

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About ChristmasEven though the turkey’s not out of the oven yet, get a headstart on celebrating Christmas with a new TV special featuring the Cat in the Hat.

For the first time, PBS KIDS debuts the one-hour segment, “The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About Christmas,” tonight on your public broadcasting channel. Watch clips online and check for local TV schedules. (Encore presentations will also be shown through December, or consider purchasing the DVD.)

Here’s a brief description of the special: The Cat in the Hat, Nick, and Sally are on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas. On the way, the Thingamajigger breaks down, and they depend on a variety of animals — from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs — and their remarkable abilities to help them.

Afterwards, play the online game tied to the show, Freezeyourknees, Follow Me, Please!, where children will take the reins in guiding Ralph the Reindeer back home.

Watch a video clip about “The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About Christmas” below.

“Between The Lions”, a literacy show for youngsters hosted by PBS, announces their first ever iPad app in partnership with Kideo—The Three Little Pigs. Intended for ages 3 to 7, this enhanced ebook allows young readers to follow along with the story using a “Read” mode that highlights each word as it is being narrated. Plus, budding readers can record their voice as they read the classic tale aloud. Play the role of the Big Bad Wolf in an interactive game called “Blow the House Down”, where kids can blow down the house using their breath and tilting capabilities. Let the fun continue with five other educational games, including a matching game, puzzles, and a construction game. Available on iTunes for $8, be on the lookout for other stories coming out soon!
