Child's Play Children's Books Featuring Puzzle Island
Child’s Play has been publishing children’s books for over thirty years now. My children grew up on these inspirational books and I can attest to the quality and magnificent learning exposure children from all over the world experience from Child’s Play books. You will find these books in libraries, classrooms and can purchase them online and through home parties.
There is no such thing as a child being too young to read to. From the time they are born we, as parents should be conditioning them to read by reading to them. Bonding with your child and giving them a secure and loving home environment leads to healthy development. Reading with or to your child is a happy fun time. Through pictures and words that you as the parent are showing the child and how they hear your voice enables them to understand. Let’s face it children love to be read to. Reading together with your child develops language skills, which in turn is needed for the child to learn how to read.
When a child learns to read it builds listening skills, attention span and increases the child’s potential for success academically. Reading also develops imagination and creativity.
Books for Babies
Baby Board Books is a set of 14 books that are specifically for babies. These books include nursery rhymes and songs to sing exposing the child to sounds and speech patterns.
Bath time Books
There are several different books to choose from in this category. My favorite was always Wally Whale and his Friends. My sons would know that it was bath time when I would grab this book from their room. Illustrated by Pam Adams Wally the Whale squeaks and spouts water making bath time so much fun. This book is recommended for ages 0 – 3.
Books for Children Ages 3-6
There Were Ten In The Bed
This book is a singsong book that teaches children ages 3 – 6 how to count backward. The song goes like this: “There were ten in the bed and the little one said roll over, roll over. So they all rolled over and one fell out. There were nine in the bed…..and so on. The book itself has a dial and as the dial turns the children tumble out of bed.
These are just a few of the books that are available. To see a full listing please go to Child’s Play. If you homeschool there are many books, games and flash cards that you will want to see.
My all-time favorite book from Child’s Play is Puzzle Island by Paul Asheed. This book is recommended for children ages 5 – 12. To be honest with you there are many adults that fall in love with this book. I always had it sitting out on my coffee table and anyone that would come over for a visit would pick up the book and usually not put it down for at least an hour.
The main objection in this book is to save a rare creature from extinction while traveling through Puzzle Island. On each page of the book, there are letters that you make words from that are jumbled. You have to find animals within the pages hidden all over the place in a jungle setting, similar to Finding Waldo. Each time you turn the page the book becomes more and more challenging. There are messages to be assembled and secret coding. This book will keep children and adults entertained while using brainpower for weeks. One of the best things I enjoyed about this book is that we would sit around the coffee or kitchen table as a family and go through this book all working together.
