Begin Smart(TM) Early Learning Program Provides New Toddler Books

July 1, 2010

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y., July 1 /PRNewswire/ — Begin Smart’s Read-and-Play Program helps start babies on the road to literacy with age-appropriate concepts, simple language, and colorful images. Begin Smart helps kids take the next step with books for toddlers ages two to three. Adults will appreciate Lily’s Potty and Pete’s Potty which zero in on one of the important milestones for this group. Kids love the lift-the flap features and child-friendly language in books especially useful now getting ready for nursery school.

Two other books in this age level, What Shapes Do You See? and What Color is Your Apple? use simple graphics, bright photos, fun die-cuts, and interactive flaps to encourage kids to notice shapes and colors in the world around them. Like all Begin Smart books, these are perfect for sharing and will engage children and adults.

The content and formats are matched to children’s interests and abilities at five developmental levels. For infants up to six months, My Little Baby shows adult and baby animals and the sounds they make. Human babies will love exploring textures in the touch-and-feel elements while learning to track, scan, and focus on objects. For ages six to twelve months, Where’s Your Nose? has touch-and-feel elements, and helps babies learn parts of the body. Kids twelve to eighteen months delight in Round Balls, Round Balls, which uses a familiar rhyme to capture the antics of a group of stuffed animals. And ages eighteen months to two years have Counting Duckies, which uses the familiar image and feel of rubber duckies to teach counting. Each lists skills that are addressed and has notes on using the book.

Begin Smart books are designed to enhance motor and cognitive skills and promote interaction between children and caregivers. Perfectly sized for little hands and coded by age level, they appeal to the senses, promote bonding between baby and caregiver, and contribute to the child’s intellectual, emotional, physical and social growth.

Every Begin Smart book is reviewed by experts in Early Literacy for content and age-appropriateness. The website www.beginsmartbooks.com, provides advice from child development experts, tips for creative ways to share Begin Smart books with babies, and an overview of the program.
