Part of PBS website - WordGirl is an animated series that follows the every day life and superhero adventures of WordGirl as she fights crime and enriches vocabulary usage, all in a day's work. Disguised as mild-mannered 5th grader, Becky Botsford, WordGirl arrived on planet Earth when she and her monkey sidekick, Captain Huggy Face, crashed their spaceship. WordGirl possesses superhero strength with the added benefit of a colossal vocabulary. Each episode introduces four new vocabulary words and reinforces their meaning in a variety of contexts. WordGirl enriches young audiences' vocabulary, closes the gap for those who don't grow up in language-rich environments, instills a love of language, and fosters better reading comprehension. The website is full of games and vocabulary adventures. W-1070
