Site Review: Little One Books (CLOSED)

The Big Train Trip [VHS]

Little One Books is a web site run by a set of grandparents who wanted to find things for their own grandchild and then in turn found things for all kids! They handpick and review books, music and movies for kids from newborn to 5 years old.

Their main purpose is to help parents choose between the overwhelming amount of materials for this age group. The site is organized by age group and also by media type. However, the part that meant the most to me was the "Why We Chose" section on each product page. It's more than just a generic product description. You can tell they've actually watched the video, read the book, etc.

I have been honored to review their site as well as The Big Train Trip from their site.

As you're aware (if you've been reading my blog for a while) my son is only slightly obsessed with trains. He does occasionally play with an airplane! We even have a train bathroom and have to go every Thursday evening to the local train yard to watch a train go through! Yeah, obsessed.

Anyway, I knew my son would love this video and I was right. He sat and watched every second! I like that it was narrated by a child and that it explained scientific concepts in a way he could understand. He liked that they passed another train and went into tunnels! When it was over, he looked me right in the eyes and said "Thank you momma. Can we watch it again?"

I was really happy with how fast the movie got here from the site. The order was acknowledged and a notice came when it shipped as well.

I'm also excited to tell you that they are giving a $25 Gift Certificate to the site to one of my readers!

it's tough to choose just one but i think i'd choose The Little Engine That Could because we don't have that one and we need it.
