SUPER WHY! Around the World Adventure Kicks off PBS KIDS Summer Learning Initiative This June

ARLINGTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

On Friday, June 15, PBS KIDS premieres the SUPER WHY! Around the World Adventure, an on-air event featuring two new episodes of SUPER WHY!. This new special is the cornerstone of PBS KIDS summer learning initiative, an effort to help kids continue building key literacy skills throughout summer vacation. Research shows that students experience significant learning loss when they do not participate in educational activities during the summer months. To help bridge this summer learning gap, PBS KIDS is providing families with the SUPER WHY! Around the World Adventure, along with a host of other fun and educational content and activities across platforms.

When children go back to school in the fall, teachers typically spend between four and six weeks re-teaching material that students have forgotten over the summer, said Lesli Rotenberg, senior vice president, Childrens Media, PBS. We want to equip families with tools to prevent this summer slide, and to make summer a time for learning and exploring. At PBS KIDS, we know that kids learn the most from content that is both educational and engaging, which is why were offering a range of activities across platforms to help kids and parents build key skills while having fun this summer.
