The Touch Magic Learning Bus is teaches letter names and sounds: To read independently, children must understand the relationship between the sounds in spoken words and the letters that represent those sounds. Teaches early vocabulary: Children expand their listening vocabulary by matching pictures to words. Teaches music: Making and listening to music can increase a child's creativity as well as support language, math, and physical development. Teaches animals: Children can begin to categorize animals by species, imitate their sounds and learn interesting facts about them. <P> <P><b>Learning Starts Here!</b> <br>"Research shows a strong link between knowing the alphabet and learning to read. We designed the Touch Magic Learning Bus to provide a good foundation for your child's future phonics learning. The Learning Bus helps children learn about letter names and the relationship between letters and sounds - crucial steps on the road to reading." -Carolyn James, Educational Expert and Learning Designer at LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc.<P> <b>What's In The Box?</b> <br>Includes 1 Bus.

Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in 1849 in Manchester, England, the daughter of a prosperous store owner. The death of her fathe...r led to financial ruin and in 1865 her mother moved the family to Knoxville, USA, where Frances began a successful writing career to help the family income. Frances Burnett used her knowledge of loss and hard times to good advantage in 'A Little Princess'. Sara Crewe, a well-to-do soldier's daughter, suddenly hears of the death of her father, and that his unfortunate business dealings have left her penniless. From being the richest, most envied girl at boarding school Sara is now reduced to the life of a menial, losing her fine room and beautiful clothes, and living in a cold attic, grudgingly fed on scraps. Despite everything, Sara remains charitable and kind, feeling herself bound to act as a princess might in times of hardship and humiliation. Using her vibrant imagination she creates vivid stories that enthrall her fellow servant, Becky, and magically transforms her drab lodging into a warm, beautifully decorated room. Nor does this little princess forget her new friends when Fate smiles on her once more and her fortunes are restored. Read More

<div><div><div>Have you ever wondered how a picture book is made? The process is similar to the way we play a team sport, put on a... play, or build a sandcastle-through collaboration. Writers and illustrators collaborate in a variety of ways. Sometimes they start as friends who choose to work together. Sometimes they become friends through the work they do. And sometimes they find that their feelings and styles change to the point where they can no longer work together. Each collaborative team and venture is unique. <br><br>Side by Side focuses on five famous author/illustrator teams and favorite books they have published: </div><div>- Arthur Yorinks/Richard Egielski & Louis the Fish </div><div>- Alice Provensen/Martin Provensen & The Glorious Flight</div><div>- Jon Scieszka/Lane Smith/Molly Leach & The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales </div><div>- Julius Lester/Jerry Pinkney & Sam and the Tigers </div><div>- Joanna Cole/Bruce Degen & The Magic School Bus Explores the Senses <br><br>Personal anecdotes, edited manuscripts, sketches, and dummy book pages show the give-and-take that goes on between authors, illustrators, editors, and designers as they are working on projects they feel passionate about. By taking readers behind the scenes of these works in progress, Marcus gives us insight into how teamwork, cooperation, and friendship play a role in shaping the creative process, and will inspire readers to view their own team effort in fresh new ways.</div></div></div> Read More

Eye to Eye shows children the magic of idioms ? words that separately have one meaning, but together take on something entirely di...fferent. Children are curious about words, especially phrases that make them laugh (Stick Your Neck Out) or sound silly (All Ears). Eye to Eye uses outlandish illustrations of what the words describe literally. The reader then has to guess the ?real? meaning of the phrases (which are at the bottom corner of the spread). At the end of the book, the reader is invited to learn more about these figures of speech. Our first book of idioms, Birds of a Feather (2009), dealt with birds, insects or animals. Our second, Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries (2011) uses food idioms. Our third book, Out of the Blue (2012) dealt with idioms about colors. This will be the fourth in the series, dealing with body parts. All four are fun ? and instructive. Read More
