PBS Kids- Between The Lions: Vowel Power


Street Date: April 15, 2014


Lion cubs Lionel and Leona and their parents Cleo and Theo
welcome you to a library like no other! In BETWEEN THE LIONS,
the doors swing open to reveal a magical place where characters
pop off the pages of books, vowels sing, and words take on a life of
their own. “VOWEL POWER” includes five fun-filled episodes. In
“The Chap with Caps,” the Lion family helps a writer fix a story
about a chap, a cap, and lots of chattering monkeys (target sound –
short “a”). In the second episode, “Pecos Bill Cleans Up the West,”
a storybook tornado blows into the library and makes a terrible
mess (target sound – short “e”). In “Little Big Mouse,” Click’s
feelings are hurt when Lionel and Leona start a fan club for a heroic
storybook mouse (target sound – short “i”), and in “The Lost Rock,”
a rock rolls out of his book and then can’t remember which book he
belongs in (target sound – short “o” and double “o”). The final
episode, “Fuzzy Wuzzy, Wuzzy?,” uses the childhood rhyme,
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy
wasn’t fuzzy, was he?, to help kids learn (target sound – short “u”).
