WordWorld: Halloween Fun! DVD Review


I often talk about the love of PBS in our household. We have a huge collection of PBS DVDs, and we just added a new one to our collection just in time for Halloween. wordworldhalloweenfun “Wordworld: Halloween Fun” is the newest DVD release for the WordWorld series and includes five stories.

  • A Kooky Spooky Halloween
  • Sheep’s Halloween Costume
  • Dog’s Camping Adventures
  • One Hat Fits All
  • Nightlight

In the frightfully fun DVD “WORDWORLD: HALLOWEEN FUN,” join the WordFriends on adventures that demonstrate the connections between letters, sounds, words, and meaning. This DVD features five stories including “A Kooky Spooky Halloween” and “Sheep’s Halloween Costume.” In “A Kooky Spooky Halloween,” Pig is so worried about finishing his Halloween bags, because he’s missing the letter B, that he ends up sleepwalking. As he sleepwalks, collecting Bs along the way, everyone thinks he’s a ghost!

WordWorld is one of the few PBS shows that my 5 year old has mixed feelings about. Sometimes she wants to watch episode after episode, and other days she wants to turn the channel when WordWorld is on. I wasn’t sure how she would respond to “WordWorld: Halloween Fun” because of this. I pulled out the DVD for her to watch today while she was home sick from school, and the DVD kept the attention of both of my girls. With a run time of approximately 60 minutes this is one of the shorter PBS DVDs we have in our collection. My 5 year old watched but seemed rather bored. However, my 2 year old loved the DVD. She happily repeated letters and words along with the characters and called out the names of each character when they appeared on screen. She especially loved when Sheep lost her magician’s hat and the characters would each put the hat back together into something new! I feel “WordWorld: Halloween Fun” is a good fit for younger children as an introduction to letters and words, especially the preschool age. My Kindergartner just seemed much too bored. “WordWorld: Halloween Fun” is available from PBSKIDS for $8.99 and Amazon for  $4.89 (prices valid at the publishing of this post).
