"Between the Lions" is a Public Broadcasting System program promoting literacy for children ages 4 through 7 years combining state-of-the-art puppetry, animation, live action, and music to achieve its mission of helping young children learn to read. This guide, in English- and Spanish-language versions, provides literacy activities for parents and their 3- to 5-year-olds and focuses on children's art and writing. The guide begins with literacy tips for parents, including talking with children about book illustrations, providing writing materials at home, and having children try various forms of expression such as drawing, painting, and writing. The guide also provides a list of suggested books for children about writing and art. The three activities in this guide involve making an art supply box at home and creating a picture book and a personal letter with writing paper included in the guide. (KB)
