Who's big, soft, has tactile ears and paws, and is eager to introduce your child to books and braille? It's Perkins Panda, of course!
The Perkins Panda Early Literacy Program is a wonderful compilation of materials designed to help you instill a love of books and reading in your child through a set of fun toys and stories. Each book is illustrated with high-contrast pictures and includes both large print and uncontracted braille so the entire family can enjoy story time together.
The full kit also includes audio cassettes that feature stories and songs written and performed by famous storyteller and songwriter Odds Bodkin. These cassettes are based on the books, but are not direct readings of the books. These tapes are also my son's favorite part of the kit! You can also get an audio download if you don't have a cassette player.
Ivan also loves to play with the story box that contains items mentioned in the second book, but my favorite parts of the kit are definitely the three activity guides, which give you tips on how to introduce the books to your child and how to take learning one step further into every day life. I love practical advice that makes learning fun!
