Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
WordGirl follows the everyday life and superhero adventures of WordGirl as she fights crime and enriches vocabulary usage. Disguised as mild-mannered fifth grader Becky Botsford, WordGirl possesses superhero strength with the added benefit of a colossal vocabulary. She is joined in her adventures by a monkey sidekick named Captain Huggy Face. Each episode introduces up to four new vocabulary words in an engaging, humorous way. WordGirl is a superhero spoof, so the storylines are funny takes of familiar stories from that genre. For children 6 to 8 years old.

This is a series of episodes that revolve around WordGirl, who is a superhero. She is normally "Becky" and she has a pet monkey named "Bob." When crime erupts, they turn into WordGirl and Captain Huggy Face (LOVE him!!) to save the day. The show uses vocabulary words repeatedly to help kids remember, paired with the visual image of the scene. Several vignettes also provide vocabulary building. This show is creative and funny. It appeals to both genders, has great music, and likable characters that kids can relate to. Each episode generally contains two story lines, separated by a game show called "May I have a word" and several other small vignettes. Great if you like to limit your child's television time because there is a natural break after 15 minutes. Highly recommend!
not just for kids
I'm a 35-year-old engineer and I love this show! I'm actually a little surprised that kids like the show so much, since it has quite bit of humor aimed at adults. It's nice to have the show on my iPod for times like unexpected delays in the airport, or when I just want to take a break from being a nerd for a while :) Of course, it is awkward explaining to the guy next to me on the plane why I am laughing at a monkey putting banana peels in a photo album...
First review of this show. This is an entertaing, clean, appropriate, humorous, and adventurous show for kids of any age.
