DVD Verdict: The WordFriends get their share of scares the night before Halloween when PIG walks in his sleep and everyone thinks he's a ghost! When the SUN rises, it's finally Halloween, SHEEP's favorite day of the year! Sheep likes nothing more than to dress up, so she always goes out of her way to make herself a special costume. When sheep loses her magician's top HAT while practicing her magic trick, the hat travels all around WordWorld, visiting Pig, DOG and DUCK, breaking into its letters each time it crashes to a halt! And whenever our heroes put it back together, the hat takes on a fresh, new form. Clearly, this hat is special! Could it even be ... magical?!
As you can guess, the loveable WordFriends take children on adventures in a world of words where they encounter all sorts of situations that can only be solved by building a word! Playfully demonstrating the connections between letters, sounds, words and meaning, WordWorld empowers children to advance from learning letters to learning how to read.
