My Big Little Adventure invites adults and kids to read, play, and explore together.
Curiosity Ignites Interest in Learning
Young children are naturally curious and adventurous. Something they see or experience, or even read about, feeds their enthusiasm for a subject. Think big machines, dinosaurs, rain puddles, big buildings, things that rhyme or the color pink. A child may develop a lifelong passion, or a passing interest, from something they read about or do with you when they are very young. Themed-based learning uses this topic-of-interest strategy to bring into focus a collection of activities and adventures that reinforce one another and become particularly memorable and impactful.
