Meet Durwin, a lovable dragon who loves to read and is excited every time he gets a new book, and his friend Keats, an organ-playing bat. These characters introduce each story to the viewer, and each story has a moral or lesson to tell, from diversity and acceptance to basic counting skills.
Grade Levels: Kindergarten to 3
"Durwin's World" DVDs can be watched two ways: You can listen to the narrator tell the story while watching each book’s original illustrations come to life. Or you can read along as each word is highlighted on screen — the story won't continue until you're ready to advance.
"Durwin's World" videos are excellent for group reading lessons, and suitable to those from a wide range of age and skill levels. Very young learners can play the story and listen to the narrator. As skill levels advance, the “read along” feature can help develop word-recognition skills.
