Orchard Hill Productions produces high-quality educational children's videos. Our first production, "Word Clue Adventure", is a live-action videotape that entertains emerging readers ages 5 - 8 while teaching them English language concepts. Set in the public library, "Word Clue Adventure" takes viewers on an unforgettable trip as they follow ten-year-old David and his friend Ashley.
An innocent bike ride turns into a strange adventure when David discovers a mysterious map, and the duo naturally turns to the library for answers.It's there they meet Biblio Tech, their bubbly musical guide who introduces syllables, vowels, letter combinations, phonics patterns and a few spelling tips as the kids follow the clues on the map. The chase has them swirling into computers, dancing with African drummer Obo Addy in a recycling bin and chatting across the pages of a dictionary.
The colorful graphics, special effects and original songs make this episode a high quality learning opportunity that children love to watch over and over. A companion activity book "Finding Clues for Words" contains 32 pages of hands-on exercises. The child uses pencils, pens, crayons and scissors in activities that reinforce the core language concepts conveyed in the tape.
