Bilingual Backyardigans

Well, at least one Backyardigans book is going to be available in Spanish. Misión a Marte (Mission to Mars) will be available August 29, 2006. Hopefully there will be more to follow!

Another interesting item that has shown up at Amazon is a Backyardigans Phonics Set. This is a boxed collection of 12 books, bound for use by schools and libraries. Reading the description, it sounds like the 12 books progress in difficulty, leading children to increase their reading ability as they read through the set in order. It might have been designed for professional educators, but it's only $10.39 (at the time of posting), making it a good idea for you homeschoolers out there, or anyone who wants to give their little reader a boost. (Nothing on which books will be part of the set, though.)

  1. Wow!
    Now I know where to come for the low-down on the Backyardigans. My kids and their cousins love the show, but new episodes seem pretty scarce. Glad to see someone's on the case!
