Ben loves ABC Kids and for those who know him this is hardly anything new. He loves to join in when the bee comes on the screen and the children say A, B, C. As a teacher I was never a huge fan of kids watching TV. Well…… as a parent I need it for survival but I have to admit I have felt guilty at times turning it on. I do make sure he is not watching rubbish! He loves loves loves ‘Postman Pat’!!!! I was excited to see and hear Ben make some links between what he had watched on TV and the books we read. I was reading away to him the other night when he pointed to the text and said ‘A, B, C’. I was very excited and a tiny bit of the guilt disappeared. I am constantly amazed at the links Ben is making. It must be the Early Childhood Teacher in me.
His favorite books at the moment are On the Go by Jan Jugran, Noisy Noisy Vroom by Ronnie Randel and Bob the Builder – Push and Pop Up Book. All of these are new books he received for his birthday – thanks!! Ben also enjoys exploring other types of print – our novels, junk mail, and the local paper. He is particularly found of Daddy’s motorbike magazines.
