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.

<div>In this beloved retelling of a legendary epic, young readers follow the adventures of Beowulf, Wiglaf, and Aelfhere, all of w...hom are endowed with a different magical ability. Far from a gift, their magic is actually a terrible burden. Beowulf?s superhuman strength makes him clumsy and even overpowers his own weapons. Aelfhere?s ability to read minds reveals disturbing truths. And Wiglaf?s life-like dreams foretell disaster. Welwyn Wilton Katz recounts the Beowulf legend from the point of view of Wiglaf, who hears about Beowulf?s many adventures: the seven-day swim in which he kills nine monsters, the battle in the mead hall with the wicked troll Grendel, the underwater struggle with the sea serpents, and the confrontation with Grendel's evil mother. Wiglaf doesn't just hear about adventure — he even participates in the final battle with a dragon. Laszlo Gal?s magnificent paintings, vividly reproduced in the pages of this rich book, are some of his finest work. Based on the art of the Vikings, they have the brilliant color and sinuous line of an illuminated manuscript.</DIV> Read More
