WordWorld TV Show Becomes Interactive
Marketed as "touchable TV," this free app presents the "Happy Birthday Dog" episode from the PBS television show WordWorld but adds interactive games into the cute animated video story. The result is top-notch animated tale plus fun learning activities that focus on early reading.
For those unfamiliar with WordWorld (and you can be, to enjoy this app), all of the characters in this world are made up of squished together words. For example the lead character of this story is a dog who looks like the letters D-O-G pushed together. Dog is afraid that all of his friends have forgotten his birthday. It's funny and charming because Dog keeps arriving at his friends' homes to find them missing because they are busy planning his surprise party.
How Kids Play
Kids join in the party-planning fun by finding things needed for the celebration. For example, with Pig the Baker, they help to find the letters to spell C-A-K-E so that Pig can make that birthday delicacy by squishing the letters together.
This app is perfect for kids who love the WordWorld TV show. But it is also great for preschoolers who aren't familiar with the show since it is highly engaging, looks like a video, but allows kids to play learning games within this TV episode. Don't miss this magical free adventure.
