Mrs Wordsmith combines data science and creativity, to show children the
words they need for school and life. Designed by the award-winning
Hollywood Art Director, Craig
Kellman, these laugh-out-loud illustrations were created to help
kids feel, learn and understand their emotions. Backed by Cambridge
University industry-leading researchers, Mrs Wordsmith is a
research-driven vocabulary and literacy program that works.

Mrs Wordsmith worked closely with Professor Susan Neuman at NYU to
develop this innovative, illustrated vocabulary program. Professor

Education for the United States and is an advisor to several literacy
research groups including Sesame Workshop, the non-profit group behind

“We focus on cultivating a growth mindset to build resilience, foster
creativity and instill a love of reading for children right from the
start,” said Sofia Fenichell, CEO of Mrs Wordsmith. “Our illustrations
for ‘share’ and ‘tough’ are two of my favorites because they are funny
and really bring difficult concepts to life for young children. For
example, these two illustrations help children understand the importance
of community and being resilient.”

The program draws upon research best practices to ignite literacy and
increase the engagement between parent and child, and is suitable for
both home and school use. The box includes tools to help young learners
navigate and express their emotions, and build their value system by
understanding who they want to be.
