GET READY FOR A C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-O-N
WITH Wordworld: Birthday Party!
ARRIVING ON DVD MARCH 17

WordWorld is an Emmy Award-Winning PBS KIDS Program that Helps Children Get Excited about Reading and Progress from Knowing Letters to Building Words



Arlington, Va. – February 19, 2015 – PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing five stories from PBS KIDS' WORDWORLD series on the new DVD Wordworld: Birthday Party! This fun-filled DVD includes five birthday-themed adventures, the first of which, "Happy Birthday, Dog," features a surprise party for WordWorld's friendly canine. Can Frog get the C-A-K-E safely to Dog's party without ruining the surprise? Also included on this DVD is "Bugs to the Rescue!" In this story Ant builds Bear a hot-air balloon for her birthday. When Dog accidentally floats away in the B-A-L-L-O-O-N, Ant gets help from other insect WordFriends to save the day.

Join the lovable WordFriends for these and three other educational birthday adventures as they playfully demonstrate the connections between letters, sounds, words, and meaning in order to empower children to advance from learning letters to learning how to read. Wordworld: Birthday Party! will be available on DVD March 17, 2015. The DVD run time is approximately 75 minutes and its SRP is $6.99.

"WordWorld," which won the 2009 Daytime Emmy Award for outstanding children's animated program, is designed to introduce, support, and foster literacy skills in children ages three to five. Young children explore the colorful, vibrant world of words with the lovable, legible WordFriends – animals whose bodies are made up of the letters that spell the word they represent. In each story, the WordFriends go on adventures and face challenges that can only be resolved with the right word. That word is built letter by letter, sound by sound. Once the word is built it "morphs" to become the spelled item – C-A-K-E, becomes a cake!

Episodes included on the DVD are listed below.

"Happy Birthday, Dog"

It's Dog's birthday and all of his friends are planning a surprise party. There's just one problem – they need a cake! Frog must get to the party safely without Dog finding out.

Build a Word: CAKE

"Pig's Present"

It's Pig's birthday and his nephews, the Three Little Pigs, are making him a secret present. Although Pig promises not to peek, his curiosity about his present gets the better of him…and wreaks havoc all over WordWorld. Will Pig ever learn to be patient?

Build a Word: JET

"The Rainbow Birthday Cake"

It is Frog's birthday, and Duck wants to make him a big, beautiful birthday cake frosted in the colors of the rainbow. Such a cake requires lots of cans of frosting, and Duck learns he can't just throw cans anywhere – they must be recycled. In WordWorld, recycling means using the letters in a discarded word to make other words, such as can-dle, which is just what Duck needs for Frog's cake!

Build a Word: CANDLE

"Bit by Bit"

It is Monkey's birthday, and a sick Frog entrusts Duck and Bug to take his present – a banana – to Monkey's birthday party for him. In their enthusiasm to get to the party, Duck and Bug accidentally break the banana into letters…and they don't know how to rebuild it! It's just too big a word. Fortunately Elephant knows a thing or two about big words, and teaches them to build the banana back, bit by bit, based on the three syllables in the word.

Build a Word: BANANA

"Bugs to the Rescue!"
Ant builds Bear a hot-air balloon for her birthday, but Dog accidentally floats away in it! Ant elicits the help of his insect WordFriends Bug, Bee and Fly to rescue Dog and save the day.

Build a Word: BALLOON
