  • Overview
  • Details
Puppetry, animation, live action and music combine in this Emmy-winning PBS series for early readers. In each episode, the members of a lion family -- Theo, Cleo, Leona and Lionel -- read a story from their magical library, where characters pop out from books, vowels sing and words spring to life. With an emphasis on phonics and key words -- and a lot of music and merriment thrown in -- "Between the Lions" -- makes learning to read fun and easy.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, in terms of PBS educational programming, this series exists somewhere between Sesame Street and The Electric Company. The focus is all about words and letter sounds. Parents will appreciate the parodies of adult shows, and kids will like the characters and the stories read during the program. But how much information is too much? This series is rather wonderful in some ways, but it teeters on the edge of being too chaotic to be effective.
