Awesome insects decorate these eye-catching number wall cards. One side features an insect built from a number that reflects its numerical feat (e.g., 50 comprises the dragonfly because it catches and eats about 50 mosquitos each day). When the cards are flipped over, the numbers 1-25 are displayed for more counting games and simple arithmetic skills. It's an engaging and entertaining way to look at and learn about bugs and their many numbers.

Our friends at CJ Educations have teamed up with us to create an award-winning iOS app. Parent's Choice bestowed a Recommended Award and say the following:
"Using the bright, engaging art of seasoned children's book illustrator Luana Rinaldo, CJ Educations provides a color learning app for preschoolers. Users can choose to play puzzles, do an activity, or sing along with an upbeat tune as they learn to identify and pair related objects in each of 12 featured colors.
"Colors are featured in 12 two-piece puzzles which the child drags into a frame of matching color. With a successful choice, the puzzle piece clicks into place in lively animation with both spoken and text identification: YELLOW moon and YELLOW sun. An easy tap on a puzzle piece creates an enlargement of the piece, object or text and narrated reiteration of the color and object featured. There is just the right amount of interactive capability with simple, compelling illustration." [read more HERE]

This charming concept book puts the child-reader "in charge" of an assortment of unruly little monsters (stand-ins for their real-life counterparts) who are wild, noisy, hungry, scary, selfish, and grump.

Promoting self-recognition of certain behaviors and the responses they elicit, it's an ideal book for young kids to share with a grown-up, who was probably once a little monster, too. And when a formerly grumpy-and-crabby monster turns into a good monster and asks nicely for a goodnight kiss, give one. Smoooch! And enjoy the rest of the evening!

Here's the concept: two matching puzzle cards will each show, say, one object to make a match. For the next two matching puzzle cards, one will show one object and the corresponding card will show two objects (similar backgrounds and such will also help the child connect these cards). The next two matching puzzle cards will each have two objects. The pattern continues up to ten. This way the child not only grasps how many the number is, but also what numbers come before and after that number.
