Learning company Mrs. Wordsmith and DK, the illustrated non-fiction global publisher, have joined forces to bring seven award-winning books and games for kids ages 4-to-13 to bookstores across Canada and the U.S.
Using gamification, visual learning, and spaced repetition, Mrs. Wordsmith guides children through interactive reading and writing resources that will foster a love of learning and accelerate literacy skills.
Young readers can learn letters and sounds with Blah Blah Blah Phonic Card Game; build
their vocabulary with Epic Words Vocabulary Book; then graduate to Storyteller's Word A Day, which leads children through story worlds using 15-minute daily vocabulary lessons.
"I am incredibly proud to be partnering with Mrs. Wordsmith, the global pioneers of educational vocabulary content; their combination of loveable characters and highly credentialed pedagogy makes this publishing program truly unique," says Mark Searle, director, publishing, DK Licensing. "As a parent of school-age children, I know how hard it can be to capture their attention and inspire a love of learning. Working together with Mrs. Wordsmith, we can strengthen our mission to make learning fun; this new range of educational books and games is perfect for curious learners of any age."
"DK is the perfect partner to introduce Mrs. Wordsmith to U.S. and Canadian audiences," says Nick Perrett, chief executive officer, Mrs. Wordsmith. "They approach the brand with the energy needed to inspire kids to read, write and create and to help spread our love of literacy, one giggle at a time."
DK will publish seven Mrs. Wordsmith titles in February and March, with more releases soon. This program provides a complete offering to support English learning.
