We are big fans of WordWorld on PBS Kids. I think it’s one of the cleverest kid’s shows on TV for the way it teaches kids to recognize letters, put them together into words, and then spell those words. While also teaching familiar concepts like being a good friend and working together! The stars of WordWorld are Duck, Dog, Pig, Frog, Sheep, Bear, and Ant. Each has a distinct personality, and like everything else in WordWorld, are each made up of the letters of their name. It’s fun to see how creative the show gets, molding the letters that spell a noun into it’s shape.
We also enjoy watching the DVDs, so we were thrilled to get the new Word World: The Train Escapade DVD from NCircle Entertainment. Kaitlyn and I enjoyed all four of the episodes! It runs 60 minutes plus there are some bonus sneak peeks at other shows at the end. The episodes are:
- You Can Never Have Too Many “OO”s–When the “OO”s in Monkey’s roof blow away, it is up to Duck to hunt them down and fix the roof before it rains. Duck rides with Kangaroo in her train to chase the /oo/ sound through WordWorld.
- Duck Hiccups–When Duck drinks down a glass of water too quickly, he gets the hiccups for the first time ever! His WordFriends try every trick in the book to help him, but which cure will work?
- Achoo!–Pig is allergic to peaches! When Sheep brings Pig a big bag of peaches to make pies, Pig starts sneezing so much that he can’t even tell Sheep what he really needs is a… a… apples.
- Get Well Soon Soup– When Ant gets sick, Pig tries to take care of him by making his special Get-Well-Soon Soup. It has all the letters in the alphabet in it, so Pig can build any that Ant needs to feel better.
Kaitlyn’s favorite episode was “Achoo!”, because she says it was so funny how Pig kept sneezing. I could tell she liked it from the constant stream of giggles while she was watching! I’m sure this DVD will go into regular rotation now
