PBS Kids Read-Alongs

To encourage family engagement and a love of reading at home, PBS KIDS offers families a place to come together and read along with fan-favorites. PBS KIDS Read-Alongs have included story-times with Marc Brown (ARTHUR), Victoria Kann (PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC), Angela Santomero (Creator of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD) and more.

Along with story-time of a beloved book, each PBS KIDS Read-Along is designed to encourage engagement among families who tune in. Below each video you can find additional resources with activities that spark conversation.
