Happy summer! While you and your family spend some much-deserved time soaking up the sun, it’s important to remember that summer must also be a time for learning. Education shouldn’t be on break just because the kids are, but have no fear because “WordGirl” is ready to save the day — and champion literacy, good grammar, and the pursuit of new vocabulary — all summer long!
Scholastic Media’s Emmy Award-winning animated TV series follows Becky Botsford, aka WordGirl, and her trusty sidekick Captain Huggy Face. This summer, the caped crusader and definition dynamo is flying onto screens from coast-to-coast flexing her crime-solving muscles in never-before-seen episodes, including a seasonal 4th of July episode.
To help young fans grow their literacy superpowers all summer long, we have a very special “WordGirl” Summer Literacy Kit so that they can get set for an action-packed summer of reading!
