PragerU releases ‘Leo & Layla,’ first fully-animated show for kids that celebrates historical figures who have influenced US and world

May. 21, 2021

LOS ANGELES —  It could not have come at a better time. PragerU has finally debuted its first fully-animated show “Leo & Layla’s History Adventures,” a new series designed for children in 3rd through 5th grade. Kids of all ages (and kids at heart) are invited to travel through history with brother-sister duo Leo and Layla as they use their special time-traveling app to meet influential figures from the past who helped shape the United States of America and the world. 

“For 10 years, thousands of our supporters have specifically asked us for kids’ content, and we are thrilled to say the time has come,” said Marissa Streit, CEO of PragerU. “Today, our kids are being indoctrinated with leftist propaganda like critical race theory, global warming ‘science’ and gender and sexual orientation spectrums. Leftists intend to turn our kids into little left-wing activists under the guise of ‘learning.’ It’s time we provided our kids with some age-appropriate, common-sense, educational entertainment.”

PragerU released the first episode of Leo & Layla on Friday, May 14 as part of PragerU Resources for Educators and Parents (PREP), which offers educational resources for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. In the inaugural episode, Leo and Layla meet Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, and learn how he brought an end to the Cold War. 

PragerU’s Chief Marketing Officer, Craig Strazzeri, estimates that millions of children will be viewing PragerU’s kids content and thousands of parents will be using PREP as a valuable resource for educating their children. 

More episodes of Leo & Layla are coming soon, featuring historical figures Adam Smith, Paul Revere, Frederick Douglass, and many more. In the meantime, check out additional PREP kids shows for students in grades K-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th and up at More shows, magazines, and kids books coming soon. Stay tuned!
