Do you have a WordWorld fan in your life?  If you do, then you may want to consider pre-ordering the upcoming WordWorld: Fun & Games DVD releases on April 16th.  Just in time for Easter, this DVD would make for a great Easter basket filler, or to bring in the car and keep your kids entertained, as you travel to visit family and friends for the holiday.

Even though my girls no longer watch this show, it was one of the PBS Kids shows that helped teach them both to read and spell, and I always recommend this award-winning series to family and friends with preschoolers, and struggling readers.  Not only are the episodes fun to watch, but kids will have fun seeing words be put together and come to life.

In this new DVD release, fans of the show get to enjoy the following full-length episodes:
  • Castles in the Sea
  • Pirate Ship
  • Playing Spies
  • Ride 'em CowBear
  • Shark's First Loose Tooth
  • Dog Wants to Play Ball
  • Kite Flight
  • X Marks the Spot
Each out the above mentioned episodes are filled with fun and adventure and perfect for this time of year, when kids are getting back outdoors to enjoy playing in the yard and enjoying the nice weather.  These episodes will spark their imagination and make pretend play more fun, while also helping them with their reader and spelling skills.  I highly recommend this upcoming DVD, and love that these DVDs are always reasonably priced, so that parents can pick up a copy to leave in the car, and one for the house or to leave at the grandparents.
