My 2 1/2 year old daughter absolutely has been memorized by the show since we found it a little over a year ago. She instantly loved Dog and Duck. Soon after that she was trying to "build a word" with her foam letters and easily started saying her letters.
Some of the best things the show has going for it are (from the site): "WordWorld is grounded in scientifically based reading research and incorporates the recommendations of the landmark report Teaching Children to Read by the National Reading Panel (2000). "
" Literacy experts and advisors in the fields of child development, psychology and education are an integral part of the WordWorld team and review content throughout the development process."
"The curriculum draws from four skill sets critical for young children's emergent literacy: print awareness, phonological sensitivity and letter knowledge, comprehension (including vocabulary development) and socio-emotional skills. "
It has won an EMMY and the Gold PARENTS' CHOICE AWARDS.
Hands down it is one of the best kids show that is one of the few that are top of the class. This is one of the must see shows on TV if you want your child to learn something while watching TV.
