Welcome to WordWorld, where words are the stars of the show! Join Duck and Fly as they learn how to be firefighters just like their friend Firefighter Frog! To be firefighters, the gang has to keep a look out for any signs of smoke in WordWorld…because where there’s smoke, there’s fire! Will Duck and Fly be able to determine what’s really smoke and what’s not? Firefighters to the rescue!
My kids ages 1 1/2 and 4 years old love Word World and I’m glad that they do! It’s a show that in my opinion demonstrates that learning to read can be fun! This show teaches children letter sounds, how to build words, rhyme, and much more! It’s pretty neat that it shows literally how letters come together to form words. Perfect for any child that learns visually.
The stories are cute and the characters completely love-able. Kids will be engaged with the stories and learn important early reading skills a long the way. I know mine have!
On the 21st of August, nCircle Entertainment released Word World to The Rescue! This collection of four different episodes each with their own general theme has been a hit in our home. Here’s a brief description below of the episodes:
To The Rescue
Duck and Fly want to become firefighters, just like their friend Firefighter Frog. To be firefighters, the gang has to keep a look out for any signs of smoke in WordWorld, because where there’s smoke, there’s fire! Will Duck and Fly be able to determine what’s really smoke and what’s not? Firefighters to the rescue!
Duck Saves Spider’s Web
When DUCK accidentally crashes into Spider’s web and breaks it apart into letters, he has to go about finding the letters to fix it. But he doesn’t know what letters are in the word ‘web’! With ELEPHANT’s help, he learns that sometimes if you can sound out a word, you can figure out what letters you need to build it.
The Best Nest
It’s DUCK’s turn at show and tell at school, and he wants to bring the thing he loves the best: his nest! But when the nest breaks apart into letters, will DUCK be able to retrieve them all in time?
Caterpillar Gets a Home
On a rainy, windy day in WordWorld, DUCK helps his new friend, caterpillar, build a home to keep her safe from the weather. But not just any word will keep an itty bitty caterpillar from getting wet or blown away…
Final Thoughts and Tidbits…
The runtime of this DVD is 60 minutes long. You can easily let your children watch the whole DVD at one sitting or space at the viewing time an afterward discuss the story and other things they they’ve learned. Along with the DVD was a Word World character poster in which my kids couldn’t wait to have hung on their wall!
Overall, I would highly recommend this DVD to parents or teachers of preschool to kindergarten aged children. Sugested retail price is 9.99. I found WordWorld: To the Rescue for 8.99 on Amazon.com.
