Follow a boy and his sidekick on an adventure at the zoo in this exciting, new, interactive, picture book from TA-DA! It’s the very first of its kind – and the first in The “Language Adventures” series; designed to expose children to world languages in an easy, natural and enjoyable way.
Kids are introduced to 12 words in a world language in each book. State-of-the-art paper electronics allows kids to simply touch the images on the paper of an otherwise normal-looking-book and hear words spoken by native speakers. The magic is enhanced with real ambient sounds and original, toe-tapping tunes by Grammy winning sensation Jesse Lewis!
It’s a fun and delightful way to bring language to life!
Available in Spanish, German, French, Mandarin Chinese and American English.
Kids simply touch the paper in an eco-friendly board book, and TA-DA! It magically comes to life with native speaker pronunciation, real animal sounds and delightful, original music by 4x Grammy-winning Jesse Lewis! Each book affords a unique musical soundscape, exposing the little guys to a variety of musical genres and instruments, awakening the senses and affording a jolly good ol’ time! The sound technology is new, state-of-the-art; It’s incredibly, crisp and clear. There are no CDs, no computers or downloads required. There are no parts to assemble or lose. It’s absolutely zero fuss. Everything is seamlessly integrated into a beautifully bound book.
Discover the enchanting worlds of 4 charming heroes - a boy and a girl who speak different languages and their inseparable, stuffed animal sidekicks! These are moving tales about discovery and exploration, imagination, and also friendship.
Our first books will take children on adventures at a not-so-typical zoo, an unsuspecting ocean and a camping trip in the backyard (or is it a magical forest?) It’s a most delightful way to learn and love language!
Our kiddos will learn 12 new words in a language in each and every book! Currently available in Spanish, French, German, Mandarin Chinese, and American English.
Brought to you by accomplished artists from multicultural homes, a globe-trotting language teacher & mom of a trilingual, and a 4x Grammy-winning music producer and sound engineer who became a daddy to a little girl who needed to speak a language he most certainly did not, these books are filled to the brim with multicultural & multilingual mystery and know-how.
The TA-DA! books have been designed, tested and approved by kids, mommies, daddies, teachers, linguists worldwide - not to mention the TA-DA! family (and their kiddos!)
