Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. A breakthrough preschool series designed to help kids with the critical skills that they need to learn to read (and love to read!) As recommended by the national reading panel (alphabet skills, word families, spelling, comprehension, and vocabulary). In every episode, one of the friends encounters a problem with another Storybrook Village character (for instance, Jill from the Jack and Jill rhyme is not being nice). As in real life, the problems require preschool social skills to resolve. And that's when Super Why gets super-powered! Whyatt calls his fairy tale friends to their secret clubhouse, named "The Book Club," where they transform themselves from mere mortals into literacy-powered super heroes: Alpha Pig with "alphabet power," Wonder Red with "word power," Princess Presto with "spelling power," Super Why with the "power to read," and your child-super You, with the "power to help." using their super powers, these super readers literally fly inside books. The adventure begins as the Super Readers find out how famous fictional characters handled similar situations (why is the Big Bad Wolf so big and bad?) This adventure inside a book helps the Super Readers figure out the answers to their own problems. Be prepared to hear: Super Why! And Super Readers to the rescue!

Nature Cat can't wait to get outside for a day of backyard nature excursions and bravery, but there's one problem: He's still a house cat with no instincts for nature. Like many of today's kids, Nature Cat is eager and enthusiastic about outside activities, but is at times intimidated by them. With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures that include exciting missions full of nature investigation, "aha" discovery moments and humor, all while inspiring children to go outside and "play the show."

The smart, fun, confident, enthusiastic characters of Wild Kratts provide role models that are culturally diverse to ensure that a wide range of viewers can identify with, and thus learn with, the characters in the show.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. A breakthrough preschool series designed to help kids with the critical skills that they need to learn to read (and love to read!) As recommended by the national reading panel (alphabet skills, word families, spelling, comprehension, and vocabulary). In every episode, one of the friends encounters a problem with another Storybrook Village character (for instance, Jill from the Jack and Jill rhyme is not being nice). As in real life, the problems require preschool social skills to resolve. And that's when Super Why gets super-powered! Whyatt calls his fairy tale friends to their secret clubhouse, named "The Book Club," where they transform themselves from mere mortals into literacy-powered super heroes: Alpha Pig with "alphabet power," Wonder Red with "word power," Princess Presto with "spelling power," Super Why with the "power to read," and your child-super You, with the "power to help." using their super powers, these super readers literally fly inside books. The adventure begins as the Super Readers find out how famous fictional characters handled similar situations (why is the Big Bad Wolf so big and bad?) This adventure inside a book helps the Super Readers figure out the answers to their own problems. Be prepared to hear: Super Why! And Super Readers to the rescue!
