“WordGirl’s Ludicrously Literate Library Week” begins this coming Monday! Starting 7/11, you will be treated to five exciting WordGirl episodes that focus on reading and books. My daughter already knows most WordGirl episodes by heart so it was nice for her to see some new ones. Also, with the summer brain meltdown in progress, previewing this week’s lineup gave her vocabulary skills a much-needed boost.
