WordWorld

Learning to form words has never been this fun.

Words come alive, words save the day, and words become a child's best friend in this 3D animated series. Each episode of WordWorld is a narrative built around a wacky troupe of characters, WordFriends, who are characters first and words second. The WordFriends go on comic adventures and face challenges that can only be resolved with the right word.

Sheep is a shy little girl who loves to pretend; Frog is the cautious brainiac and word "expert"; impetuous Duck is still learning his letters; Pig lives in the moment; Ant is a pragmatic bundle of energy; and Dog is a WordFriend's best friend.


For Parents

Word building is a unique moment when children witness a word form and then 'morph' into the thing it is. Word building reinforces the pre-reading concept that letters make words, and that words have real meaning and power.
