WORDGIRL Tricks & Treats Review & Giveaway...

Have you all seen the show on PBS, WordGirl?  It is great...a real, quality program for children.  WordGirl follows the life of Becky Botsford (AKA WordGirl) as she fights crime and promotes vocabulary usage.  Each episodes introduces new vocabulary words in a fun way.   Well, just in time for Halloween, there is a new WordGirl DVD out....WordGirl Tricks & Treats!

The superhero with the super vocabulary, WordGirl, and her sidekick Captain Huggy Face battle quirky ill-mannered, uniformed villains with her super power… knowledge! WORDGIRL: TRICKS & TREATS introduces sixteen new vocabulary words and reinforces their meanings in a variety of fun and interesting ways. The DVD features eight action-packed adventures, interactive games, coloring pages and resources for parents. The “WordGirl” television series has received the 2008 Emmy® Award for Best Writing in Animation, is a recipient of the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Children’s Programming and a Parents’ Choice Award.

The included episodes are:  Tobey's Tricks & Treats, Becky & the Bard, Lunch Lady Chuck, Class Act, A Vote for Becky, Villain School, Tobey's Masterpiece and Who Wants Candy.

My guys really, really liked this DVD.  Superheroes are the ultimate in cool according to A&W these days which makes WordGirl a hit.  They love to watch the antics of the "villains" in each episode and I love how WordGirl helps to make learning vocabulary words fun.  This fun DVD introduces 16 new words such as eerie, famished and articulate...thanks WordGirl!

You can pick up this just released DVD in time for Halloween viewing here on Amazon...
