Word World is a cute and unique concept that will familiarize your child with letters and words. The main characters - pig, sheep, bear, frog, duck, and ant - are all created from the letters in their name. They are really cute! Many items in the show are created out of letters - a hay stack is formed out of the word "hay"; a barn is formed from "barn"; and even a water splash spells the word "splash." Individual letters are also predominant in the program, and each episode contains at least one instance where the characters join letters to create a word, which then becomes whatever that word is - b.o.x. joined to form a box.
All of my girls loved the pilot DVD. They watched the entire DVD several times, always clamoring to watch it again each time it ended. As I sit here typing this post, my oldest daughter (Pookie Bear) climbed up in my lap and named the individual letters in the dog and house pictured above. I have not worked with her on any letters except the ones in her name, and these are not all in her name. That's a great tribute to this show! For more information, read Word World's About page.
