Steve Roslonek, also known as “SteveSongs,” is Mr. Steve, cohost of the PBS KIDS pre-school destination. With his catchy melodies and educational lyrics, it is no surprise as to why he is a family favorite. Steve observes, “I believe it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to educate without entertaining. If they’re not engaged, they’re not going to learn it.” He delights preschoolers every day during WXXI’s kids line-up, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Super Why, from the hit PBS Kids series of the same name, invites young viewers into a pop-up story to experience a brightly-illustrated children’s tale brought to magical life. “Super Why” airs weekdays at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD and 6:30 p.m. on WXXI-Create.
