Editorial Reviews

A wild word-building adventure! When Mr. Websley is accidentally silenced by the Silent E Machine, Leap, Lily and Tad must journey through the Complex Word Complex to build the code words needed to return his voice. Guided only by the "Absent Professor Device," the kids learn how to build the complex words needed to solve the code and save the day. Humorous songs add to the fun and help teach the rules for advanced word-building. This title was previously released as TALKING WORDS FACTORY 2: CODE WORD CAPER.

The other reviews are right. If you like the Talking Words Factory, you should like this follow-on video.

In this episode, children are taught about long vowel sounds, 'silent E", blended letters (such as sh and th), as well as blended vowels (the old when two vowels go walking the first one does the talking).

In addition, children are shown how vowels are forced to say their names when E's are added to their ends. Fat becomes long-A fate, for example.

Worth the money, for sure. [Certainly my 2.5 year-old would not know his letters and their sounds without these videos.]

You DO learn something new every day, and this DVD will give you a few days worth.

While visiting the Complex Words Complex with their Dad and the Professor, Leap, Lily and Tad accidentally cause Mr. Websley to lose his voice in the Silent E Machine, and have to solve a word puzzle to get it back for him.

This DVD teaches three lessons in an easy and fun way that will have kids singing along and actually enjoying an educational program.

First of all, we learn about the silent E, visually depicted by a semi-transparent letter E with band-aids across its mouth. Next, we learn about the sounds CH, SH and TH, and finally, how to pronounce words where two vowels come together.

Of course, given the complexities of the English language, these simple rules don’t work in all cases, but your kids will easily grasp the basic concepts.

My one problem is in the opening sequence, where it sounds as if the Professor is incorrectly singing “the O says Aaaaah”, but that may be a case of either a strange accent or a bad audio transfer, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

It certainly opened my eyes to a few learning tools, and I would recommend it to the parent or guardian of any child between 2 and 6 years old.

My son has every Leapfrog DVD and they're all *excellent*. Code Word Caper is no different, showing children long vowel sounds, how the silent "e" changes a word, vowel blends, etc.

This DVD explains how that although there are 26 letters in the alphabet, there are far more sounds than just 26.

Through an engaging caper at the Complex Word Complex, Tad, Leap and Lily learn about A, E, I, O, U and sometimes Y. At the Silent E Machine, it's explained that the silent "e" makes the first vowel say it's "name". For example, cap and cape, pet and Pete, hid and hide, hope and hope, cut and cute, dim and dime, not and note. There's a fun song reinforcing this principle with lots of examples.

Then, at the Ch-Sh-Th Sound Machine, the youngsters are shown how to make blends and how they sound, e.g., chin, chat, ship, shop, thin, and think. Using another fun song, children are shown how consonant combos form blends: "First you take a letter C then you add a letter H--put them both together and a whole new sound you make."

Lastly, Code Word Capers demonstrates "vowel teams"...when two vowels are "stuck" together. For example, oa, ea, and ie. An excellent song (whose lyrics were once on either Sesame Street or the Electric Company...I remember it as a kid!) says "When 2 vowels go walking, the first one does the talking". So the first vowel says its name in a vowel team. E.g. team, tail, leap, pay, pie, goat, boat, bee, and see.

My son really enjoys this DVD and it wasn't long before he was singing the songs around the house! Code Word Caper has helped him read consonant blends, vowel teams, and words with the silent 'e'...the results are very noticeable.

I highly recommend this DVD for children who have mastered short vowel sounds and 3-letter words and are ready to move on to more advanced Phonics.

Let me begin by saying that I have all the old Leap Frog DVD's. I didn't purchase this for myself, since I figured that the same title meant the same video. I did purchase these for friends with preschool age children. As an early childhood and later an elementary school teacher, I have taught many children how to read. I have also seen many different videos, books, and other materials meant to aid children in the process that learning to read is. I have to admit that this video series is simply one of the best phonics learning aids I have encountered in all my years teaching. I recommend these to parents all the time. These videos are the very best products ever produced by LeapFrog, and that is saying something since many of their toys are good. The videos are 30 minutes long and targest basic phonics skills that children must master in order to learn how to read. The running time for these movies is perfect considering the attention span of the children it targets. The songs used are catchy, and the story lines are fun for most kids. The crowning jewels of the series are the first three phonics videos.

The Letter Factory teaches children the names and sounds of all the letters in the alphabet. The vowels are only given their short sounds at this point, but that is ok for this level of learning.

The Talking Words Factory teaches children how to put letters and their sounds together to make simple words, mostly with the consonant-vowel-consonant pattern and a few consonant blends.

The Word Caper movie goes on to introduce silent E, long vowel sounds, and vowel-vowel combinations.

The Math Circus video from this series is also good for children learning their numbers and basic addition/subtraction.
