Introduce Your Little Ones to the Works of Shakespeare and Fun Rock Stars from the World of Rock Music

It is never too early to introduce a wide variety of topics to toddlers and preschoolers. Board books are sturdy and more authors are now publishing very creative books in this form so that parents and teachers have the opportunity to introduce many subjects to young children. Silver Dolphin Books has released two creative board books to introduce young children to the works of Shakespeare and the history of rock music.

William Sheepspeare introduces the works of Shakespeare with adorable sheep as the characters in this board book. The text is written in the form of a biography of Shakespeare and introduces his works that were performed at the Globe Theater. Parents will notice the creative puns in the text. Each pun is centered around an animal. "William Sheepspeare wrote over thirty "ram-ances,even shearious tragedies" is just one of the creative puns that fill each page with humor. An illustration of the Globe Theater is also part of the story. This delightful board book is part of the Wild Bios Series for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. It has an ISBN of 978-1-68412-619-4.

Parents and grandparents will be delighted with The Story of Rock, a history of some of the most influential rock musicians from the 60's through the 90's. This fun board book can introduce your young child to Elvis, the Beatles, and Janice Joplin. Others are included from these eras of rock music. The illustrations are colorful and engaging with each musician featured with musical instruments. Introducing the music from each star with recordings as you read along will have your little one "rockin' out". The Story of Rock as an ISBN of 978-1-68412-509-8.

Intriguing Boardbook Biography of Artist from Mexico

FRIDA CATLO is the third in the Wild Bios Series from Silver Dolphin books that introduces the very young to art in this sturdy boardbook. This artist began her painting career by learning about photography from her father. She was involved in a terrible accident as a young child and spent her time while recuperating by trying her hand at painting. Her paintings featured beautiful objects from her Mexican heritage. She was invited to show her work at the Louvre in Paris, France in 1939. What a thrill! Her paintings from a Mexican artist were the first that the Louvre had ever purchased. Her works can now be found in many other museums.

FRIDA CATLO has an ISBN of 978-1-68142-558-6.

Add All Three to Your Early Childhood Classroom Library

Early childhood teachers or caregivers will want to add all three of these delightful boardbooks to their book collection in the classroom. Each offers an unique opportunity to introduce a special topic to young children and some history of each topic. The colorful and beautifully done illustrations are engaging for young children. Boardbooks are sturdy and designed for even the roughest treatment in early childhood classrooms. Low bookshelves in early classrooms make it easy for children to take from the shelf to "read" on their own.

Bringing recordings of rock music into the classroom when introducing The History of Rock is perfect for getting your little ones onto the dance floor for a fun activity. The boardbook featuring the Mexican artist present an opportunity to offer painting activities after introducing this artist. This choice is also a great one for putting some multicultural art into the classroom after enjoying the book.
