 Carnegie Reporter, Vol. 1, No. 1 | Between the Lions Rates a Roar of Approval
As soon as a child laughed through one half hour of Between the Lions, no conscientious parent or teacher could ask, “Does the show work for kids?” Clearly, the most ambitious children’s television program in a decade, aimed at teaching young children the fundamentals of reading, is good entertainment.

She noted that because Between the Lions is available free on public television it could “reinforce, motivate and extend early literacy instruction, both in the classroom and within the children’s home.”
