Remember last week when I told you about an upcoming review I would be doing for Eebee books? Well, here it is and I couldn’t be happier to share these adorable books with you all! Eebee books are fun and educational interactive books put out for babies up to age three. Right up Baby R’s alley!
Eebee’s adventures are designed to engage you and your baby with rich play experiences that provide powerful lessons that memorizing letters, numbers, colors and shapes simply can and do not.
Watching and, importantly, “doing” eebee’s adventures will allow you and your baby to see and learn first-hand what happens when you explore a crinkly, crunchy, smooth and bumpy paper mountain or roll, bounce, bop, bang, slide and toss your way around a world of balls and ramps.
Don’t you just love that? Every baby learns by doing…fantastic and SO true. We can all have our babies parrot the alphabet but they truly are learning more by playing and experiencing. What a great message and a super philosophy. Kind of takes the pressure off doesn’t it? Play with your baby….no problem!
The Eebee books I mentioned are all board books except for Peek-A-Boo which is of cloth. This is important because if your young children are like mine, paper is an actual food group! Board and cloth books are the only things that will survive Baby R’s voracious appetite for paper.
Now, back to the Every baby learns by doing concept. Each Eebee book is interactive. For instance, Baby R an I just read Peek-A-Boo. This one is a textured lift the flap that instructs baby to find Eebee who is hiding behind a scarf, hat, rain coat etc…So, while you are reading to your baby you are also playing peek-a-boo AND teaching your child about cause and effect. In Make it Happen, Eebee and some toddler friends show baby opposites like round and flat and off and on. Baby R’s favorite is open and close which shows an image of Eebee and a child opening and closing a book which Baby R then likes to copy.
I really like the Eebee series but more importantly, Baby R really, really likes it. I think she likes being involved in the story, the bright pictures which include actual children as well as the adorable Eebee. The words and concepts are simple enough for young ones to understand but interesting enough for them to keep coming back for more. I would highly recommend any of the Eebee books for any child three and under. Big thumbs up from me as well as two little thumbs up from Baby R!
