P is for Pooh and Preschoolers Too! Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends help preschoolers "think, think, think" as they journey through One Hundred Acre Wood in Disney's Winnie-the-Pooh Preschool
. This title has been enhanced with introductions to Spanish and French. It also features age-appropriate activities focused on important skills like sequencing, categorisation and phonics. Preschoolers will cook alphabet soup in Kanga's kitchen, count vegetables from Rabbit's garden, visit Pooh's "Echo Tree" for a lesson in foreign language and attend a birthday celebration for Eeyore.
Winnie the Pooh is his usual befuddled self and just can't remember what it is that he's forgotten. After a period of some very tough thinking, he recalls that it's Eeyore's birthday, and he better get ready for the party. Beautiful graphics and delightful narration set the stage for this adventure in which children play six games to help Pooh prepare for Eeyore's party.
The activities are nicely integrated into the storyline. Rabbit, for instance, can't come to the party unless all of his vegetable jars are labeled. Kids help him by matching number labels to the number of objects in each jar. To free Piglet up to make the birthday cake, children color pictures by matching the colors of a model. To help Tigger get the party music ready, children use their listening skills as they match the sounds of musical pipes. Children practice their alphabet skills with Kanga and Roo and are also exposed to exercises in counting, sequencing and categorization. After they complete each activity, a gift is presented at Eeyore's birthday table. The program culminates in his party, of course!
In addition to the engaging activities, children will appreciate that they can print out workbook pages, stickers, bookmarks, concentration cards and ID cards, all featuring Winnie the Pooh artwork. The breadth and depth of the CD is a real strength, with three adjustable levels of difficulty for each game- making it perfect for toddlers and preschoolers alike.
