Perhaps, like me, you’re wondering why Super Why has made a splash in the cartoon industry. And why not? With all of the cartoons out there, how is this one different from any of the others? Well, it may interest you to know that Super Why was created by the creators of Blues Clues, in order to improve critical reading skills in children from ages 3-6. Approximately 20%-30% of children have difficulty reading. With attention spans decreasing more and more each day, it is critical to improve these skills by any means possible. Super Why presents these reading concepts in a fun and exciting way.
For even more fun and interaction with Super Why, visit the PBS website. In one of the games, you can even make a cake and pick different toppings to put on the cake. Whatever topping you pick to put on the cake, you have to spell. It’s pretty neat stuff, and I’m sure that your child will get a kick out of it, even if it’s just to work on his or her spelling, in a fun and interactive way.
If your little one is craving a little piece of Super Why to take home, consider buying him or her a gift that you an actually personalize on this website. For Christmas we have Super Why! Super Readers Christmas Stocking and the Super Why! Farewell to Santa Ornament. Of course we also have the classic Super Why! Action Figure as well as Super Why! Style and Pose Wonder Red Doll, the superstar version of Red Riding Hood.
