I love this show! Even though PBS’s Read Between The Lions has been around for seven seasons, I always like to refer parents to it just in case they don’t know it exists. It’s a show that can do a lot to add to your child’s reading skills. Here are some of the things you’ll see on the show:

  • Books and stories are read aloud (book characters even come to life!)
  • New vocabulary is introduced in context
  • Words, syllables, and letters are highlighted as they’re spoken (this really helps fluency and word recognition!)
  • Silly songs and rhymes that promote reading in a fun way

Check out this video to get a peek at what it’s like:

You can also visit the PBS Lions’ page for cool games, stories, and videos that extend the activities you see on the show. It’s a really useful site that compliments a great show!
