When my twins were little, they loved to watch the Baby Einstein videos. Their favorites were always the ones with animals. We owned World Animals, Neighborhood Animals, Baby Noah, and Baby MacDonald. That’s probably why my boys (now 5) are still big animal lovers! The combination of real animals and puppets, music and humor, really grabbed their attention, and set them on a path of being fascinated by animals.
Now, Baby Einstein has a brand-new animal DVD: World Animal Adventure! In this beautifully filmed program, viewers visit the seven continents to learn about the animals that live there. Native music accompanies each segment. As a parent or child care professional, watching this DVD with little ones can be the springboard for further play and learning about animals. And World Animal Adventure has two new features to facilitate learning: “Select-A-Segment,” which allows you to choose shorter parts of the program to view when time is limited, and “Grow with Me,” which has added spoken and written language, plus extra puppet shows that will stimulate your child’s growing sense of humor.
You can find out more about the Baby Einstein philosophy, as well as their full line of DVDs, CDs, books and toys, at http://www.babyeinstein.com. You can also visit their YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/babyeinstein to see samples of their DVDs. I thoroughly enjoyed Baby Einstein: World Animal Adventure, and I think you and your little one are going to love it, too!
