The newest PBS Kids series, Molly of Denali, will join the CPTV Kids lineup starting Monday, July 15, 2019!
Molly of Denali is an action-adventure comedy that follows the adventures of feisty and resourceful 10-year-old Molly Mabray, an Alaska Native girl. Molly of Denali is the first nationally distributed children’s series in the U.S. to feature an Alaska Native lead character. Molly helps her mom and dad run the Denali Trading Post, a general store, bunkhouse, and transport hub in the fictional village of Qyah, Alaska.
Each episode follows Molly, her dog Suki, and her friends Tooey and Trini on their daily adventures in Alaska, from fishing to building snow forts to delivering a camera to friends on a volcano via dog sled!
Designed to help kids ages 4-8 develop knowledge and skills for interacting with informational texts, the series uses books, field guides, historical archives, maps, charts, posters, and more to enhance each of Molly’s adventures.
When to Watch
Molly of Denali will air on CPTV weekdays at 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. beginning July 15. The series will also air on the CPTV PBS Kids 24/7 streaming digital channel Monday-Thursday at 7:30 p.m. (repeating overnight at 3:30 a.m.).
Activities & Digital Resources
Molly of Denali website and digital games will also launch in July, followed by the Molly of Denali mobile app in August, through which kids can use informational text to fish for salmon, create beaded designs, and care for sled dogs.
