Between the Lions: Season 1

2000 NR

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.
