Super Why!

Super Why! makes reading an empowering adventure by using interactive literacy games that need YOU to play. In Super Why! reading is power!

We begin each 24-minute reading adventure in Storybrook Village, a magical 3-D world hidden behind the bookshelves in a children's library. The Storybrook Village is the home of your child's favorite fairytale characters. In every episode, one of the friends encounters a problem with another Storybrook Village character. As in real life, the problems require preschool social skills to resolve. The adventure begins as the Super Readers find out how famous fictional characters handled similar situations. This adventure inside a book helps the Super Readers figure out the answers to their own problems. 

Use these videos, interactives and activities to emphasize literacy concepts in the classroom.
