The World of Eric Carle My First Smart Pad Library Review (Publications International)

What It Is

The World of Eric Carle My First Smart Pad Library combines eight interactive books with a two-sided electronic activity pad that's perfectly sized for small hands. The eight books feature Eric Carle artwork and focus on early learning concepts, including the alphabet, spelling, opposites, and rhymes as well as animal names, behaviors, habitats, and sizes. The two-sided electronic activity pad features 51 padded letter and picture buttons that play letter names, alphabet games, animal sounds, and music. The books prompt kids to press buttons while they read to bring the pages to life.

Is It Fun?

This is an interactive way to introduce preschoolers to early learning concepts. Even if children can't read yet, they can pretend to as they press the buttons on the activity pad and bring the animals in the stories to life. The activity pad's carry handle makes it easy to take on the go so that kids can listen to animal sounds and play alphabet games even without the books. We like that every component in this activity set features the beautiful artwork of Eric Carle.

Who It’s For

The World of Eric Carle My First Smart Pad Library is for ages 3–6. Younger children might need Mom or Dad's help reading the stories.
