Things to Explore
  • Bookpacks: Reinforce reading comprehension with special backpacks that contain a book and related activity sheet, game, or puzzle.
  • iPads: Interact with various literacy, math, coding, and music apps created by PBS Kids.
  • Magnet Board: Practice letters and sounds, identify vowels and consonants, and make words.

Curl up with a good book in the quiet, cozy Literacy Lounge, sponsored by WHTJ PBS Kids! Children’s early exposure to language varies widely, and some children have heard as many as 30 million fewer words than others by age 3, which affects vocabulary as well as general social and cognitive development. Read a story, discuss new words and practice them in conversation, and share thoughts and ideas about the books you’ve read.
