As many of you know, I am a mother and a teacher. With having a strong background in education I am very aware of the value of books, music and videos being incorporated into the daily lives of little ones. But have you looked for children's books, DVD's or CD's lately? There are SO many out there it's getting really difficult to make the right decisions in purchasing items that will support development and education while still being entertaining.
Little One Books gives you a place to turn for information to help guide you in the right direction for your children. Little One Books offers a great selection of books, DVD's and CD's for children ages birth to 5 that isn't too overwhelming. They have broken everything into appropriate age categories to get you headed down the right path. But they have taken it a step further and provided a brief section that explains why they have chosen to offer each individual item. Everything about this site is really well done! It's easy to navigate and full of useful information!
I recently had the wonderful opportunity to review one of the fabulous products they carry. I started by going into the age group for one year olds and decided on a DVD. Another thing you may or may not know about me is that I started my teaching career at a school for deaf and hard of hearing children. So when I saw the My Baby Can Talk collection I knew I wanted to give it a try! I decided to go with My Baby Can Talk: First Signs.
I have been signing with my daughter for a few months now, and she has picked up a few signs. But I am certainly not as engaging as a DVD with bright colors and great music. So I thought this DVD would make for a great addition to our process of helping her learn some basic signs for communication.
I was pleased to see that they signs illustrated were many of the same signs we had been working on.... more, eat, drink and other simple words. I loved the way the DVD was laid out with repetition and the way they connected the signs to the meanings. My daughter was fully engaged through most of the video. This is something I can continue to show her for quite a while!
I was impressed with the organization and selection of products from Little One Books. I will definitely be looking to them for more suggestions of great materials for my daughter!
