Welcome to Lomax, the Hound of Music, Sirius Thinking's new music education series for PBS!




Between the Lions
is a multiple-Emmy- Award-winning children's series designed to help children ages four to seven acquire beginning reading skills and a love of reading. The program, now in its sixth broadcast season on PBS, features a family of lions -- Theo and Cleo and their cubs, Lionel and Leona -- who live in, and run, an enchanted library. Each episode centers on a book, newspaper or other everyday reading experience.

Between the Lions is built around a curriculum that incorporates the most recent evidence-based research in literacy instruction. Each episode features an engaging variety of entertaining animation, puppetry, live action, music and graphic segments that supplement the stories and address the curriculum goals.

Research conducted with children in Mississippi (2001-2002) and in Kansas (2000) confirms that children can significantly improve their reading skills by watching Between the Lions. These two evidence-based studies show that viewing Between the Lions boosts children's early reading skills in key areas, such as phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency and vocabulary.
