Review:
This is a super-learning tool! Children can learn about different cultures through a variety of learning exercises and music. This CD and accompanying instruction book take children, teachers and parents on a globetrotting, musical journey around the world celebrating other cultures and customs. This is best used in a classroom setting with a teacher or instructor but involved parents could use this at home. The individual passport and journal teaches children about travel and passports; identification of flags and musical instruments pertinent to each country visited; vocabulary and writing skills. Children practice handwriting and penmanship skills through written recordings of their participation. Critical thinking skills are encouraged as well as artistic skills. This program encompasses language arts, social studies, music, and art. The adult instruction book is bursting with ideas for learning activities. The price is very reasonable for the excellent content. This is a must for every nursery school curriculum and for every family who desires to teach their children respect for other cultures and ways of living.
