PBS Kids is one of our favorite stations on the television and websites on the computer. They have so many terrific educational program for children. In WordWorld, words come alive, words save the day, and words become a child’s best friend. The characters in this show are animals whose bodes are made up of the letters that spell the word they are. Ingenious! Children are taught basic literacy skills in this eduactional program.
We were sent a copies of WordWorld’s The Train Escapade Giveaway to review. My girls love it! The teacher in me gets a little grumpy at the non-blending of phonetic sounds in this show, but that is easily compensated for by watching it with my girls. That’s right, watching this DVD is a family event! My four-year-old says that Duck is her favorite because “he is always super silly.” The song “You can never have too many oo’s” is incredibly catchy and we all sing it throughout the day!
Here is a brief synopsis of this 60 minute DVD.
You Can Never Have Too Many Oo’s: When the two letter O’s in Monkey’s roof blow away in the wind, it’s up to Duck to hunt down the /oo/ sound and fix the roof before it rains. Can Kangaroo and Duck save the day?
Ducks 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 word that ant needs to feel better.
