What’s better than laughing while you learn?! Students will love it, and teachers will love to see it. That’s why DK has teamed up with the world’s silliest learning company, Mrs Wordsmith, on a series of workbooks, games, and other activity-based resources that center around improving the literacy outcomes of kids ages 4–11. These tools, created alongside teachers, combine proven learning science with Hollywood-quality animation and state-of-the-art game design to build vocabulary, strengthen reading comprehension, and help kids boost their skills across every aspect of the English curriculum. 

Five minutes of daily vocabulary learning helps children develop a curiosity for language, which accelerates self-driven learning, and ultimately improves listening, speaking, reading, and writing, too. And 80% of new words are acquired via direct explanation, rather than just “figuring it out” while reading. That’s why DK’s Mrs Wordsmith products are guided by the conviction that educational resources should be every bit as exciting and hilarious as the movies kids watch and the games kids play, and provide a premium, modern learning experience that is more motivating and more fun than any other.
