Something for a New Big Sister (or Brother)

My niece is expecting her second baby any day now and I was looking for something to keep the soon-to-be-big-sister busy. ; )

I’ve enjoyed reading feedback for the first set of Language Together, but I was surprised (and happy) to hear that they are so well-received by babies and toddlers.

The books are designed to teach preschool to elementary-age children languages using a natural immersion method (available in Spanish, Chinese, French or English). Since babies and toddlers’ brains are busy acquiring language skills, it makes sense that these books are fun for them, too.

My great niece will celebrate her second birthday in November and is learning new words every day, so I thought I’d send her the Language Together English Set 1 with a zippered bag for her to store the books (the box is great but not easy for little fingers). I found this super cute Yorbi “I’m Very Busy” pencil pouch at Target and all ten books fit inside perfectly! It should be easy for my niece to stash in a diaper bag for instant entertainment on the go—
