Only by working together are the friends able to find a way to contain all of the jiggling jelly.

“Get Well Soon Soup”
When Ant gets sick, Pig tries to take care of him by making his special Get-Well-Soon Soup. It has all the letters in the alphabet in it, so Pig can build any word that Ant needs to feel better. Pig just has to figure out what that word is!

“Catch That C!”
While Pig and Ant are making cookies, their bag of letter C’s gets away from them, sending the WordFriends on a wild goose chase all over WordWorld to catch that C!

My Thoughts

This television show is a ton of fun for preschoolers. It's really unique because all the characters are actually made from the letters that spell their names, which really helps young kids to recognize the words when they see them later. This DVD set includes several of their fantastic episodes, all with a fun food and eating theme. They include:

Get Well Soon Soup
Catch That C!
The Mystery of the Disappearing Pie
Pies, Pies, Pies!
Pig's Big Moonlight Feast
A String's the Thing

My children just love this show and we're looking forward to seeing what they come up with next season. Any fan of WordWorld is going to want this DVD on their collection.
