Seriously, this is reason to celebrate. Tonight my 4-year-old sat and listened to an audio story for 30 minutes, never moving. He was captivated.
Billy Brown stories are produced by Giddio, a children’s entertainment company. Using several actors they tell adventurous stories filled with educational facts about the characters and plots. In the story we listened to, Billy Bear Goes Camping, we join Billy and his best friend Emma on an educational hike. At the same time, the Wilson family of humans are on their own canoeing/camping trip when adventure strikes.
The sound effects are wonderful. The sounds of nature had me looking outside for a crow or a hawk. The river took me back to white water rafting trips. The story is a bit farfetched, as Billy Bear communicates with both humans and animals, and explains that some animals only speak the sounds of the forest. But, don’t tell my 4-year-old, who held onto the CD and plans to listen on our next car trip. I was a bit surprised by some of the conversation in the story, like the mentioning of a dirty diaper which seemed off topic, or the gasp of the mother saying, “Oh G-d!” Both were true to life, but not something I expect in audios or videos for 3 year olds.
