Bob and Ben the Trains for Toddlers and Preschoolers

without comments

Picture of Bob the Train from YouTubeMy 3 year old son loves Bob the Train on YouTube (who apparently has a brother named Ben), which teaches basic lessons about the alphabet, numbers, colors, shapes, etc.  And while as an adult he seems so repetitive, as an educator, I think it is great that he wants to watch this over and over, as that is what will get his neurons to click together to learn these concepts.  And if I watch it with him, I can prompt him to see if he can say something like the color before Bob/Ben says it.

So if you have a young child or grandchild, you might want to share Bob and Ben with them too.
