I Really Want to Be First!

release date: Apr 12, 2022
I Really Want to Be First!
Meet Really Bird, a small bird who lives in a large city park with his friends Cat, Pup, Mouse, and Rabbit. In each story, Really Bird finds himself really wanting something - to be bigger, to have his fair share, or to be the leader - to be really silly, funny, strong, cool, happy, or brave. And when he feels something, he really feels it. Each story is an entertaining, character-driven caper based on relatable social/emotional themes, delivered with surprise twists, high drama, and expert comic timing. Along the way, lessons are learned about qualities such as teamwork and compassion. The emphasis is on character growth and development through creative problem-solving. Friendship and emotional engagement are at the heart of every story. In I Really Want to Be First!, Really Bird is usually in line behind his two best friends, Cat and Pup. He wants to be first for a change, so he thinks up a scheme to become the leader of the group. Along the way, Really Bird discovers that being the leader involves more than being first.

Animals

release date: Jun 11, 2013
Animals
A full-size illustration of an animal appears on one side of the card. On the other side is a smaller illustration and the word for that animal in three languages--English, French, Spanish. An adult plays with a child who is learning to talk by showing him or her the picture and then encouraging the repetition of the word in any or all of the three languages. If the child is a bit older, the adult can point out the letters that form the words and ask that child to say them, too. A child with some basic letter or reading proficiency could also use the cards on his or her own to learn the words. Once the child has gained some grasp of the words, the adult can have the child guess or remember the words by just showing the picture without showing the words (at first). Letting the child have fun being noisy is a big part of this acitivity''s appeal. Adults should encourage the child to shout, or whisper, or sing the words--depending on each particular child''s personality and natural inclinations. The illustrations are both intricate and spare, perfect for holding younger children''s focus.
