If you’re looking for a line of fun and effective books to introduce your child to different languages, you might want to check out The Little Pim books. These particular books are based off the award-winning Little Pim DVDs that promote learning different languages in fun and effective way.
The Little Pim Book on Feelings is a great way to teach your child about how to read the expressions of people especially as your child gets older and is learning exactly how to put a word to the emotions they are feeling too. There are five feelings covered in the book which are: happy, scared, shy, sad, and surprised. Not only that but your child will get the opportunity to learn each feeling word not just in English but in Spanish and French as well.
In this story, children will follow Pim the Panda through out the pages as he feels different ways. On one side of the page is Pim and on the other are three lift or pull out tabs which feature colored photographs of children expressing how they feel. My daughter and son enjoy this book but I’ve found that my daughter got a little confused between the emotion shy and scared which are closely similar. And my 16 month old son was deeply concerned with a baby girl who was crying in one of the pictures. He kept saying “oh no”, and proceeded to kiss the little girls picture so she would feel better. At first I was concerned but overall I think it’s healthy to share and talk about our feelings even with a child as young as my son.
At the end of the book, there’s a review of all the words learned in the multiple languages represented. Reading the line of Little Pim book has prompted me to check out the DVD offerings for my children too. You can learn more about Little Pim on their website in which you can find apps, play games, download coloring sheets, parents guides, and more!
You can purchase Little Pim: Feelings on Amazon.com for 8.95 and it’s eligible for free shipping!

Coming up soon on my blog, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on eFoods Direct, a company that offers traditional freeze-dried and dehydrated food products. This company stands on three basic principles: Serve, Save, and Share. Serve great food and one another, Save for unforeseen circumstances that lie ahead, and Share the message of gaining control of your food supply and be less dependent on others.
I think having food security extremely important with the economy of today whether it be a natural disaster, financial issue, or the loss of a job. In fact, just a few months ago, we purchased a deep freeze so as to stay a step or two ahead of the game and to have a supply of food for whatever unexpected circumstances that could come our way. Plus having easy to go to food on those rather busy days can be a life saver for any family looking to save money not spending it on an easy to purchase to go meal that always may not be the healthier choice.
I’m excited on the foods that my family and I will be receiving to share our thoughts on, especially after browsing the large selection found on the Efoods Direct website. There’s all sorts of food supply packages from 1 week supplies to 1 year. I’ll share more in the next week or two to come. But while you are waiting, be sure to check out their website. I couldn’t also help to think with camping season this Summer that this would be something great to take along to cover breakfast, lunch and dinner.
