Out of everyone, people and animals, I like children the best. They’re fun to play with, they always come over to say hello and pet me, and they are always friendly. I love children. So my first business that I’m featuring is a company that provides children with informative, interesting, and interactional books about dogs and other animals. What is a picture book? A book with pictures, right? Not at Kidz Entertainment, Inc. Their picture books include so much more than just what the eyes can see. How about what the ears can hear? What the fingers can touch? Sensory skills are very important for children. So Kidz Entertainment, Inc. put together picture book packages that include items that will reach visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (hands-on) learners from ages 3-8 years old. “Show Dog” is one of the picture books that is offered (of course I chose the dog one to discuss!) It was written by author, songwriter, vocalist, and radio personality Diane Baumann. The package includes a 36-page colorful, attention-grabbing book that teaches children about each breed of dog that is featured. There is also a music CD that goes along with the book including The Songwriter’s Guild of America’s National Award Winning song “Show Dog.” The song follows the words of the book, so as children learn the words of the song, they can sing along while following the words in the book, ultimately helping them learn to read! In addition to the book and CD, the package includes a coloring book with non-toxic crayons. You can also choose either a 49-piece puzzle that features the breeds of dogs from the story in different locations or a handbag/muff/plush dog. Children that are hands-on learners need to use their hands and do something in order to learn best. While the children are looking at the breeds of dogs, listening to the words of the song, and flipping through the book, no matter what type of learner they are, they will retain more information than they would with just one of the three options. Does your child take music lessons? The sheet music for the song is also included in the package! This package really is the whole package. In addition to “Show Dog,” there is also “Show Cat” and “I Can’t Seem to Find My Tail” about Pansie the Piglet. The packages for these books include all that was mentioned with “Show Dog.” There are also gifts that coordinate with the books, such as handbags in the form of dogs, cats, and Pansie the Pig. You can purchase jewelry and other CDs as well. Individual items and packages run from $4.95 to $29.95. For specific pricing, videos, and to purchase products from Kidz Entertainment, Inc., go to http://www.kidzentertainmentinc.com I hope this blog post was beneficial to you. If you purchase any of the items from this website, please let me know how your child enjoys them! I want to know what you think of the businesses we feature on our blog.

Imagine a cuddly, adorable stuffed animal that can also be used as a muff to keep your hands warm on those cooler days or a purse when you’re on the go—a purse that comes with coloring and story books, music, puzzles and maybe even a necklace with a sparkly charm! This, simply put, is a kids dream and it’s the brainchild of Long Islander Diane Baumann, president of Kidz Entertainment, Inc., who started the company in order to give kids an educational, musical, entertaining and interactive experience bundled into on adventure. And it’s an adventure even adults can enjoy. A unique gift for any child, the Show Dog and Show Cat Picture Book sets contain bright illustrations coupled with facts about different breeds, along with a coloring book (with non-toxic crayons) and a music sheet with a CD attached to the back cover, all in a compact carrying case. And these are just two of the many sets (items are also sold individually) featuring all kinds of loveable plush animals, serving as both a muff and handbag, in addition to a cuddly friend. How cute is that? The picture book “I Can’t Seem to Find My Tail,” a story of friendship, comes with Pansie the Piglet, a pink muff/handbag/plush piglet with a lavender pearl necklace and removable rhinestone charm. You can sing along to the marvelously bouncy CD with all the adorable and quirky characters: Biff the surfer-bee; Tasha the hip-hop nightingale; Jeremiah the sailor-frog; and Isabella the aristocratic swan. e big and colorful illustrations will delight and invite young readers into a captivating world that pays tribute to both old woodcuts and the modern tints of the airbrush. I Wanna Be Pur-r-r-fect (Show Cat) is filled with Broadway show-tune-flavored music with witty lyrics. The setting for these Aristo-cats is that of a 1920s mansion in its heyday of wealth and royalty. With the sheet music in hand, singing along with the CD, laughing at the imagery and learning about the different breeds of cats, it adds up to a foot-tapping experience which is entertaining, educational and interactive. Show Dog is a large-format children’s picture book, with it’s enclosed title-song CD and sheet music, will have the whole family singing and is a great way to help children just learning to read. Available as a Kindle download as well, Show Dog was selected as the best song in the children’s/novelty class for the Eastern Region and went on to win the National Award on the 75th Anniversary of the Songwriter’s Guild of America, the oldest and most prestigious song writing organization in the USA.

The worst thing about babysitting on a Saturday night is not knowing what to do with that five year old companion who insists, as she sits down on the couch with arms crossed, that she is incredibly bored. Because, of course, she’s already played with all her toys “a zillion times” and watched those videos “a bazillion times.” Even if she just got them for Christmas. Kidz Entertainment Inc. has a website full of fun, colorful, entertaining, and even educational toys that are sure to spark any child’s interest and make that more babysitting experience enjoyable for both the little princess who seems to have every toy imaginable and you. Toys range from purses that can be the perfect accessory to that fashion show the two of you will have or a muff to keep tiny hands warm on the walk you want to take or just a plush animal she can hug as you enjoy the story or the CD together. There are also great puzzles, coloring books, and picture books (minus the purses) with facts about dog breeds in case your five year old companion is a boy instead of a girl. These charming toys were created by Diane Corrado, who was a musician, singer/songwriter, and a radio dj. Inspired by her song about a show dog, Diane has developed a line of toys that merge music, love for animals, wonderful graphics, and engaging stories together. This is creative fun that you might find you’re just as eager to enjoy as the child you care for on Saturday night! Read More About: Relate Magazine Internet Article
