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!
