Little One Books
THE Place for Books, Cd’s and DVD’s for 0-5 years old
Little One Books was founded five years ago when Barney and Joan Cohen became grandparents for the first time. After searching for products for their grandchild they began to feel overwhelmed with the amount of products available. Little One books was then born out of the idea to help others make informed choices from among the vast amount of material available for children today. They specialize in quality books, music, and video, for children birth through age five, and they have personally reviewed and selected each and every item in their store. They also have a fantastic section on each product page called “Why We Chose” to help you understand what that product is about and how it fits into the age group they are recommending.
I choose three books and two DVD’s which arrived quickly, and were exactly what I expected. First was Eric Carle’s “10 Little Rubber Ducks.” I picked this book for my daughter who although is under the recommended age, I know she will grow into this story. She love ducks and animals and Eric Carle, as usual does not disappoint with the astounding illustrations, poignant and funny story with lovable rhymes. Which leads me to my second selection, a book for my three year old, Jake which was The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle. Again, there are breath-taking illustrations, a sweet story about a cricket who meets other animals and cannot make a sound until he meets another cricket. The last page is a delight to little ones when there is an actual chirping sound from the book! Lastly, for Joey, now five, I choose a Dr. Seuss classic, “If I Ran the Zoo” where the funny and unforgettable Gerald McGrew thinks about what kinds of animals he’d have in his zoo.
For the DVD’s I chose the Scholastic Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories which has 28 beloved children’s stories that are faithfully adapted and brought to life in this 4-DVD collection. It includes Curious George, Good Night Gorilla, Courduroy and Harold and the Purple Crayon. This seems like a steal at only 29.95! Lastly, we picked a classic, The Night Before Christmas which actually includes three other famed stories, The First Christmas, The Christmas Visitor, and Santa Claus’ Punch & Judy. This was a steal at 5.98!
So this holiday season, especially if you are a new parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle…or if you just need a little help finding the perfect gift, don’t underestimate the power of stories!
