Little Learner books by Parragon Publishing are terrific for toddlers and babies learning vocabulary and learning to handle books. They are interactive, fun, and colorful. It is important to read to your child every night. As a baby they only see the bright contrasting colors, but they hear Mommy or Daddy’s voice and that is so important in building vocabulary.
The Little Learners titles we received include:
- This Little Piggy (Finger Puppet Book)
- I Can Share (Slide and See)
- Night Night (Shaped Foam Book)
- Animals and Words (Stroller Book boxed set)
When the books arrived, I Feel Happy quickly disappeared from Mommy’s desk. The children read it every day to MES. She loves to interact with the book by pulling out the pictures to find out the rest of the story. She’s really learning all about different feelings and opposite of that feeling when she interacts with the book. What a sneaky way to educate my girl?!
Today, MES decided that she needed to cheer up Clara with a story. She read her This Little Piggy. MES loved playing “This Little Piggy” when she was a baby, and she loved reading the story while making piggy sounds with the finger puppet in the middle.
As you may know, we have a good bedtime routine, and even Clara gets a story or two. The foam Night Night book is perfect for Clara. The book is virtually indestructible and she can bat at it, kick it all as she learns new vocabulary from the pictures!
I love stroller books. They’re so handy to have on-the-go. Little Learners has a boxed set of two stroller books that have soft fleece stroller attachments that Clara loves to hold on to. The little board books are wonderful in the carseat too. The lucky child who sits next to Clara enjoys showing her the pictures of animals in the book Animals while the other two children make the animal noises from the back of the minivan. The children also like to show Clara the pictures in the book Words.
by Sarah Flynn from the Parragon Publishing blog:
Sharing books with your little one is such an important and enjoyable experience for both children and parents. At Parragon, they wanted to support this bonding experience with a view to the child’s mind. How will a baby interact with each book in a series, and how do they make sure that parents understand a child’s learning process through a book? From this question, Little Learners was born, bringing to life a series of colourful and contemporary characters for kids and parents to play along with.
Each book in the series focuses on a different level of child development during children’s most crucial learning stages, encouraging education and interactive play between parent and baby—anytime, anywhere. The books take on a variety of fun formats including snuggly cloth books, stroller books, “slide and see” play, bath books, and finger puppets; topics range from colors and numbers to animals, food, and sharing, taking every moment as an opportunity to learn along with beautifully illustrated characters.
Developed in conjunction with educational consultants, Little Learners also aims to make key learning concepts easy for parents. With icons on each book indicating its learning functions – including interactive play, hand-eye coordination, language development, first words, knowledge about the world, listening skills, and sense of touch – parents can rest easy knowing that their babies are engaging with the world around them in a meaningful way.
The Little Learners range has been extensively tested by focus groups of real mothers, all of whom loved the unique, playful nature of the books. Said one mother: “Little Learners have depth to them, they are perfect for babies but have things for them to grow into as well, like concepts around texture and size.”
