My eldest son, age seven, is a big fan of WordGirl and so am I.  I love it!  WordGirl is witty and fun.  Definitely the kind of show I would have watched as a young girl and definitely the kind of show I want my children to see.  WordGirl teaches vocabulary in her superhero way.  With silly Captin Huggy Face she bravely fights bad vocabulary wherever she can.  Hilarious!  This new DVD is a great collection to have on hand for any potential rainy days this summer.  Entertain yourself and your children;)


I received this DVD for review purposes, all opinions expressed are my own.
