A Football Story by Richard Torrey

Time for some FOOTBALL!!!!

This book, one of many in this series, allows the reader/child to really LEARN the sport, but in story form, it's just so unique and I really love them!

From shoulder pads to stretching, tackling to scrimmaging, will playing on a real football team be as much fun as playing in the park with Dad?

Experience all the excitement of Drew’s very first football practice in Richard Torrey’s picture book app for sports fans of all ages.

Users will touch and tap their way along with Drew and his teammates as they sign-up, get their equipment, warm up, and learn some basic skills. Then it’s time for practice and the thrill of playing their first scrimmage! Touchdown!
Developed from Torrey’s print book of the same name, his text and pictures capture perfectly both the early jitters and the utter delight of the young player. Budding sports stars will want to relive Drew’s “best real football practice ever” over and over again!

Lift-the-Flap Word Book

My preschooler looks for the picture while my first grader looks for the word. 

With lots of flaps to lift, this charming book lets young children have fun matching words and pictures. It's the ideal way to give beginner readers practice in word recognition and also provides plenty for pre-readers to find, name and talk about.

Hop, Skip and Jump with CD

I absolutely love these books!!!!! And instead of a totally annoying tingy sound, these books w/cd play classical music that the kids can dance to without annoying mommy. In fact, I join right in! ;) Check them out!

Little children and toddlers love to jiggle and move around to bouncy music. This delightful book and CD contains lots of lively tunes for hopping, skipping and jumping.

Little Ballerina Dancing Book with CD

This book and CD will delight any aspiring little ballerina. The CD contains over 30 minutes of enchanting ballet music – perfect for tiptoeing, twirling and skipping.
70% of our books are under $10! Awesome price, right?! But collections are still the huge money savers, plus you're catering to your entire "here" rather than one child at a time... Maybe you can even use a book or two as a baby shower gift!

I'll share a couple of my favorite collections tomorrow.
