Traveling BearIf you are a parent with young kids aged 3-7 or if you have friends with children that age, you want to be able to guide them through the valuable experiences that life has to offer. However, the short attention span of children can be an obstacle sometimes. My young kids could only sit for half an hour at most, then their attention would wander to other things. Traveling Bear is just the right thing to keep them occupied while teaching them the important things in life. It is like a book club for kids. Traveling Bear consists of 14 books in a series with each book having its own CD. The CDs that comes with the books to help the children read along and develop their reading skills. The first book, Traveling Bear and the Drive-Through Safari, is all about a bear and his friends who go on a safari to learn about different animals.
