I love to watch TV with my son. Many of the programs they have today are so much better than anything we had when I was young. One of my favorites is Word World. Word World is an animated program that runs on PBS. All of the characters and most of the props and scenery is made up of the letters that spell out that word. For example, Frog, one of the main characters, is the letters FROG with arms, legs, and a head added on. Most of the episodes consist of the characters creating things with letters and learning about the upper and lower-case versions of letters. Best of all, the dialogue isn’t dumbed down, so it isn’t as annoying as some other programs aimed at children.
