All parents know the importance of teaching their little one to read. Not only is reading educational but it is also very pleasurable for your child. From the time your child is born, you will notice how books will catch their attention. Watch how they stare at the pictures and tune into your voice as you read to them. They are already learning. Hallmark Interactive Storybook Buddies and Interactive Storybooks bring story time to life.
Let me introduce Cooper! Cooper is cute cuddly little bear. He is a Hallmark Interactive Storybook Buddy. My daughter loves her Cooper interactive storybook buddy! K gets so excited when Cooper responds to the keywords as we read the book. When we first started reading Cooper’s Big Bear Hug to K, she couldn’t quite say “Cooper crinkled his nose” and it came out of K as ”Cooper crinkled him nose” and of course, Cooper doesn’t respond to the keywords because they aren’t right. We practiced the proper way to say the phrase until K could clearly say “Cooper crinkled his nose.” The first time she did say the phrase correctly and Cooper responded, K squealed with happiness! Now K wants to say each phrase just right so Cooper can understand her and respond during the story.
The first interactive storybook, included with Cooper, is Cooper’s Big Bear Hug. Written by Melissa Woo and illustrated by Crista Couch. Follow Cooper as he searches for ideas, from his friends, to show his mom how much he loves her. Cooper doesn’t really like his friend’s ideas but soon learns the best way to show his mom he loves her. Cooper and Cooper’s Big Bear Hug will warm the heart of your little one. It is so cute to watch K hug Cooper and say “Cooper, I love you” as Cooper responds “I love you too” story time has never been so fun to watch! Not only is Cooper helping K to read but helping her along with her speech as well.
Hallmark has three additional interactive story books for Cooper: Cooper’s Bedtime, Cooper’s Rainy Day and Cooper’s Airplane Adventure. Cooper says more with each different book as you unlock more phrases for him to say. I can’t wait to see how K reacts to the new adventures with Cooper!
