Young children learn in many ways - through watching, listening and doing. But they learn best when their attention is completely captured - when theyre focused on a new sight, sound or experience that completely engages them.
And that is guaranteed to happen with the latest multimedia DVD from ABC for Kids, the enchanting Learning to Count and Spell.
This innovative and appealing recording is a full-length DVD packed with the songs and stories small children love to hear over and over again.
But its much more than just music. Thanks to twenty-first century technology, the songs on Learning to Count and Spell are presented using simple, brightly coloured illustrations complete with delightful animations that will help to build concentration, memory, word association skills and even simple reading abilities.
Its the perfect way for technology-savvy toddlers to be introduced to some of the classic songs and rhymes of our culture - all presented in a funky, fun way.
Learning to Count and Spell focuses on simple number and word patterns and skills, presented through songs and rhymes.
Children are encouraged to learn their alphabet with the help of visual images, sounds and music on tracks like "The Alphabet Song" and "Counting the Alphabet", while counting in fives and tens, odd and even numbers, as well as the two and three times tables are all introduced using cool sounds and tunes that kids will love.
The highlight of this DVD is the incredibly cute animations used in songs like "The Ants Go Marching On", "Six Little Ducks", "Three Blind Mice" (complete with ultra-cool sunglasses), "Three Little Jellyfish", "Alice the Camel", "Three Little Kittens" and particularly "One Man Went to Mow".
Every track on Learning to Count and Spell features lyrics printed in bright, simple type, so children and parents can read along as they listen and sing. Theres also a special bonus workshop section on the DVD, teaching children to make their own clocks from simple craft materials, together with a collection of photos of some fun clocks that are easy to create.
Learning to Count and Spell will delight parents and children alike, and is sure to be an invaluable resource for teachers and child care workers who want to bring educational rhymes to life with colour, movement and lively, appealing music.
