WordWorld DVD Review

One of the biggest things Little Man has being studying in Kindergarten is letter recognition and letter sounds. We try our best to keep up the practice at home too. We read everything. Books, magazines, signs, food boxes. You name it, we've pointed out the letters and encouraged him to sound out the words.

WordWorld: Lots of Letters was released on September 29th. Word World is perfect for reinforcing letters. As their tag line states, it's where "words come alive," and the animation is very intriguing for my little one. He loves that the characters, houses, and many other items are created from the letters that spell them out.
Lots of Letters contains 16 episodes for a running time of 180 minutes. Little Man's favorite episode was The Lost Letter L, especially because L was the letter of the week at school. He loved seeing where the character's adventures would lead and what words they would create. I enjoy that the show teaches letter sounds and word composition, as well as problem solving and life skills.

You can buy Lots of Letters at NCircle Entertainment, Toys R Us, or Amazon. You can also catch WordWorld daily on PBS kids.

And just so you know...NCircle provided a copy of the DVD for review. But that does influence my opinion in any way.
