Snug as a Bug in a Rug!

Last week I visited the office of WordWorld. WordWorld is an animated show on PBS where the main characters (WordFriends) are both animals and words. For example, one of the characters is a duck, Duck not only looks like a duck, but his body spells duck as well. As you might imagine with a title like WordWorld, the show aims to foster a love of words and reading in budding readers.

I am a fan of WordWorld cartoons and toys, so as one would expect, it was a thrill to learn how their animations and scripts are produced!

Anyway, during my visit, I discovered a new Word World initiative–their online e-books. Imagine a pop-up book in an online format with lots of WordFriends! How fun?! Check out this month’s e-book here. (Note: Make sure your computer volume is on when you view the e-book!) In addition, WordWorld has a number of word games for children posted on their site. This is a good site to pass along to budding readers and their parents this summer!

Happy Word Reading!

    Anna,

    What a great post! That is my nephew’s favorite TV Show. I can’t wait to show him the games.
