Welcome to the Wonderful World of Words (WOW). This 20-part series of books aims to help children learn English grammar in a fun and meaningful way through stories. Children will be able to understand how grammar works through the exciting tales of the characters from WOW Kingdom and Forest.
The stories also help children learn vocabulary that is integrated with grammar, so they can use words accurately in sentences and help improve their writing.
- Imaginative stories that engage children, and help develop an interest in learning grammar
- Adventures that encourage children to learn and understand grammar, and not just memorise rules
- Games and activities to reinforce learning and check for understanding

Volume 12 - The Admiral Goes to the Rescue

Volume 13 The Queen Goes to the Rescue

Here are the testimonials to share with you all,
I am really impressed by The Wonderful World of Words series. My only regret is not getting it sooner! With mass disruptions to schools arising from the pandemic, it is important for parents like myself help our children to pick up valuable language learning skills, most of which need to start early. The titles in this series teaches complex grammar rules in such a fun way that that my three-year old now a fan of King King Norman Nautilus Noun can identify these naming words in the English language!

The great thing about the The Wonderful World of Words series is how it is set in an awesome magical kingdom, filled with the personified word classes, such as King Noun and his loyal henchman Admiral Adjective, Queen Verb and her best friend the Artisan Adverb, the cheeky prince pronoun and proper princess preposition, just to name a few. So its a mixture of different types of activities and different levels of difficulty to best complement your child understanding of English grammar. I noticed improvements in my daughter who is now more engaged for her English lessons.
Serene, mother of Sophie (5)
Bursting with colourful artwork and with a plethora of word-related activities to seal understanding, the WoW series definitely lives up to its name! A cast of loveable and funny characters helps grammar to come alive. Suitable for kids of all ages, I hope there will be more books in this series soon to help explain other complex topics like sentence structures and punctuation.
Zhi Hao, father of Zaphyr (6)
My three-year old is not very vocal and is going for speech therapy to help him learn how to communicate and speak better. At first, I was hesitant to get him try reading since he is already behind in speech, but grammar exercises are very helpful and he does well with the short story and activity book format of the WoW series. It has a simple storyline to keep him and he now loves pointing out the word classes in sentences.
I prefer helping my children to build their language skills slowly and try not to push them into things aren't ready for. I tried many grammar books which were either way too technical or advanced or were clearly for younger kids learning basic alphabets. Even though it is important, it didnt make sense teaching kids word classes like nouns and adjectives when they were unable to spell anything above five letters! Until a friend in the preschool industry recommended the WoW series to me. It starts slow but is detailed and thorough, with an engaging storyline for kids to pick language up naturally. I cannot recommend it more!
