Peekaboo People starring Richard Scarry’s Busytown

Comments Off on Peekaboo People starring Richard Scarry’s Busytown

Richard Scarry’s Busytown characters join the Peekaboo series!

An elevator inside an office building opens to reveal your favorite Busytown characters demonstrating different types of jobs. Catch a Carpenter hammering, a Doctor listening to Huckle’s heartbeat, and a Dancer’s arabesque! Toddlers will love playing peekaboo with these busy worker-bees, as they familiarize themselves with the names, sounds, and actions of each profession. Preschoolers and kindergarteners will have fun trying to guess who will appear next when the doors open, work on spelling, and discuss who they want to be when they grow up.

– A rotating cast of 13 different Busytown characters demonstrating different jobs are waiting behind elevator doors to surprise your little ones.
– Choose from our cute 4 year old child narrator or the adult voice, for a clearer and correct pronunciation
– Original music and fun sound effects that correspond with the characters actions 
- Hear and see the words repeated for each item, helping children both learn to say and spell the names
– Lowly Worm pops up randomly in the elevator. Have fun spotting this wiggly worm with your kiddos
– Select looped mode for endless play or storybook mode- which ends with all the characters going home to sleep- perfect for bedtime!

Children across the world have loved Richard Scarry’s books since they were first published in the 1960’s. Busytown’s magic is rooted in its ability to explain how things work and open up the adult world to kids— in a way they can relate to and understand. Here in Peekaboo People, Scarry’s characters come to life to teach your child about a variety of professions. Staying true to the artistic style of Busytown these animated characters were hand-drawn and colored based off Scarry’s original illustrations.

Don’t push the buttons, Harry Hamster – kids picture book

Comments Off on Don’t push the buttons, Harry Hamster – kids picture book

Don’t push the buttons: a picture book for kids, ages 2 – 7. A great story to read for them, or to have it read to them.

“If you’re good today, I’ll take you to go look at the rocket,” says Dad.
“The rocket!” shouts Harry Hamster. “The rocket that’ll go to the moon! Wheeeeeee!”
“Only if you’re a good boy,” Dad says. “So don’t wander off. Don’t climb on anything. Don’t touch anything. Don’t talk to hamsters you don’t know. And above all, do NOT push ANY buttons.”

Harry is going to the spaceport. There is just one condition: he is not allowed to touch any buttons. That’s not easy for a hamster who loves buttons…

– an exciting, good-humoured, interactive picture book with games and sound effects
– push the buttons and mess things up!
– read yourself, or have the book read to you in English, Dutch, Frysk or Indonesian

Waar kom ik vandaan?

Comments Off on Waar kom ik vandaan?

‘Waar kom ik vandaan?’ is vandaag gratis in verband met de AppEvent actie! Download de gratis AppEvent-app en mis nooit meer een gratis app of bezoek voor meer gratis apps de komende dagen.

Het verhaal gaat over de kleuter Lisa die een zusje krijgt. Hierdoor vraagt Lisa zich af waar ze vandaan komt. Deze vraag wordt overal ter wereld door talloze kinderen gesteld. Er wordt Lisa van alles op de mouw gespeld, maar ze vraagt net zolang door totdat oma haar de waarheid vertelt.

Een ideaal verhaal voor kinderen die net een zusje of broertje gekregen hebben.

• Een grappige tekst van Rian Visser,
• Aantrekkelijke illustraties van Tineke Meirink,
• Het verhaal wordt door maar liefst 6 mensen voorgelezen: Barbara Labrie (verteller, mama en oma), Floor van der Kolk (Lisa), Job Labrie (buurjongen), Rian Visser (tante), Stefan de Groot (buurman) en Bert Vegelien (vader en opa) en Siebe Meijer (oom)
• Ontdek alle animaties
• Zoek op de pagina’s naar het speentje, flesje of knuffel van de baby. Klik erop en de baby begint te huilen of te lachen.

‘Waar kom ik vandaan?’ verscheen eerder bij uitgeverij Gottmer als prentenboek onder de titel: ‘Waar kom ik eigenlijk vandaan?’

Biblion: ‘Nadat Lisa een zusje heeft gekregen, vraagt ze zich af waar ze zelf vandaan komt. De antwoorden zijn telkens heel fantasievol. Behalve de grappige tekst met het aantrekkelijke herhalingselement is dit prentenboek ook humoristisch geïllustreerd. Alle personages zijn fors, als karikaturen, weergegeven. Ze stralen een zeker dynamiek uit. Door enkele onopvallende details valt er voor de oplettende kijkers iets extra te ontdekken. Mooi uitgegeven boek voor kinderen vanaf 4 jaar.’

Tip! Als uw kind het verhaal kent, kunt u een rollenspel doen. Uw kind kan de teksten van Lisa zeggen en u die van de andere mensen. Daarna draait u de rollen om.
