I don`t know about your kids, but my daughter just LOVES reading books. She`s 5 and at the age of learning her letters, making the sounds, and putting them together to make words. So reading is an opportunity for her to learn more or try to practice her words. We were sent 2 books from Twin Sisters Productions
to check out AND they`re offering the same thing to one lucky reader of mine!
Fraternal Twins Kim Thompson and Karen Hilderbrand have always been close, and have always worked well together. This company was born out of a love for children and seeing the wonderful look of pride on their faces when they have mastered a concept, and have had fun doing it!
Kim:Â "I startedÂ my career as a classroom teacher.Â I loved teaching first grade and would incorporate music on a daily basis. My class wouldÂ sing our spelling words, clap out rhythms, march around the room - all while learning. Many phonemic awareness activities involve music, and I found this to be a really fun and effective way to teach. When I earned my masters degree inÂ "Integrating the Arts into the Elementary School Curriculum,"
I was convinced that music was a powerful teaching tool. I began teaching third grade and while becoming familiar with my new math curriculum, discovered that I would be teaching the multiplication facts. What a challenge! I knew that using music and rhythm would make it fun and easy - so that`s what I did.Â KarenÂ and I worked together and wroteÂ "Rap With The Facts."Â We recorded our first album with the help of Hal Wright, and that`s how it allÂ began!"Â
Since the beginning, we have been blessed with continual growth.Â OurÂ MISSIONÂ is to beÂ The Leader in Children`s Educational Music.Â Â We have workedÂ very hard toÂ create excellent products thatÂ children will enjoy, and to make learning effective and fun for the lives that we touch through our music.Â ToÂ get a glimpse of how hardÂ we have been working to be the leader in children`s educational music, visit our awards section.
I opted to receive The Night-Night Song Book
as well as the I Love Your More Book
.Â The Night-Night Song can be enjoyed as a song, sung delicately for little ears or as a story read word for word. Establish a comforting night time routine with this sweet story of mama animals tucking their little babies into bed. The I Love You More book is described as:Â With a gentle kiss, Mama Bear puts Little Bear to bed. â€œI love youâ€ turns into a sweet game between Mama Bear and Little Bear as they come up with many â€œI love you moreâ€ ideas. Make this tender game part of your bedtime routine and create your own â€œI love you moreâ€ examples with your child.
What are my thoughts?
I personally think these books are adorable! They are each 8x8 padded board books. Both also include lullaby music cd`s which I personally love. Each book shows off cute and colorful graphics which are age appropriate, but still show a lot of detail. Even as an adult I love the photos! The books are kept short, but with a story line to it. This I find is excellent for younger children learning to read as well as bed time stories. The text of the books are also larger for an easier read. With a combination of the colors, great story line, and an all around child, family-friendly book I am definitely pleased. These also make gift for new mothers because they can play the lullaby`s to the infant and then read the books as the child(ren) grows older. I definitely recommend this product!
