SUPER WHY! “Royal Reading Week” – Starts July 2 at 9:00am and 12:00pm 

 

 “King Eddie Who Loved Spaghetti” – July 2

It's dinner time at Whyatt's house but things are not going well! He's perplexed when Mom and Dad say that what's on his plate isn't healthy.  To find out why, the reading superheroes fly into the story King Eddie Who Loved Spaghetti and encounter a wacky king who only wants to eat one thing - spaghetti!  As the super readers convince King Eddie taste new foods, Whyatt learns there's more to dinner than he had originally thought!

 

“Princess Gwennie Saves the Day” – July 3

Princess Pea is feeling dramatic (as usual) and she and Red are staging a play. Princess is pretending she's a queen but Red doesn't know what to be!  The super readers fly into the story of a princess with a silly sense of humor and a big job to do.  They help Gwennie use her talents to save the day, and Red discovers her own special gifts.

 

“The Twelve Dancing Princesses” – July 4

Whyatt's family is acting very sneaky and he wants to know why!  The Super Readers waltz into the story of the Twelve Dancing Princesses - who are acting just as secretive.  The Super Readers may be hot on the trail of the Princesses to discover what they're concealing, but will Whyatt uncover what his family is hiding?

 

“The Emperor’s New Clothes” – July 5

Littlest Pig is very embarrassed.  Jill wants him to wear a bucket on his head for their game, and he feels just plain silly!  The Super Readers dive into the tale of The Emperor's New Clothes and meet an Emperor who doesn't want to look ridiculous either!  Trouble is, his clothes seem to be invisible, and there's nothing sillier than a parade in your underwear!

 

“Cinderella: The Prince's Side of the Story” – July 6

Red and Little Boy Blue are playing some music together when Little Boy Blue suddenly disappears!  This is just like when Cinderella left the ball without finishing her dance.  To solve the mystery, Super Why and his friends soar into Cinderella's fairytale once again, and this time they talk to the prince!
