Arthur's World

Arthur® and Friends

Arthur® and Friends uses imaginative settings to put you inside Marc Brown’s beloved books and the popular television series produced by WGBH-TV Boston. Familiar characters – Arthur, Binky, Buster, and D.W. – come to life as children tell stories and practice dramatic play as building blocks to developing their reading and writing skills. Parents and children can even serve as co-pilots on a cross-country plane trip with Buster or see themselves on screen with Arthur and his buddies.  And all of this takes place in some of the most classic Arthur storybook scenes: The Read Family Kitchen, Mr. Ratburn’s Classroom, and the Backyard Sleepover.  Arthur® and Friends promotes important early skills, attitudes and behaviors in children such as reading, understanding feelings, creative problem solving, being a good friend and connecting to family.
