What the experts say
“Every child in America should have a Mrs Wordsmith product because they teach the most important words. Feedback from our focus groups in New York around child engagement was very positive. Teachers even said the kids were so excited it was hard to keep the class under control! That’s Hollywood style literacy for you.”

What parents say
“We got our copy of the @mrsWOfficial Storyteller's Illustrated Dictionary last week and it is FREAKING AWESOME. Highly recommend. Super fun to just look at the illustrations with my son and try new words on for size! Brilliant stuff. Keep it comin'!”
Backed by research
Teaching a new word alongside its common word pairs increases the speed and efficiency of vocabulary learning and shows children how to use it.
Cartoons are a very effective way to present vocabulary. Images carry visual meaning, while laughter releases dopamine which activates long-term memory.
80% of new words children learn are acquired through direct explanation rather than ‘figuring it out’ through reading.
Five minutes of daily vocabulary study helps children develop word consciousness and accelerates self-driven learning.
