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!
