BAKU THE TRAVEL BUG: MAKING FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD cover image
Kids loved it. Really enjoyed the dancing and the cooking. Asked to see it again and again. They liked learning about other countries and cultures. Practiced saying new words they learned in different languages. "One five year old watched it at a later date and wrote down all the words in the other languages with their translations." Kids wanted to learn how to make tostados from Mexico and sweets from India. "I want to cook like that." "They were kind to each other and shared things and gave gifts." "It was great."
A great way to teach children and parents about other countries and some basic words from foreign languages. Language is taught through real life scenes such as cooking and learning Spanish words for the foods they make. Blends puppetry and live action beautifully as it tours the world. Children are encouraged to participate in many ways, through interactive questions and dancing. Baku and his friends are very polite.
Baku the Travel Bug says, "Hola! Namaste! And Hello!" Baku is a loveable travel bug who lives inside the travel bag of his best friend and travel partner, Aunt Sydney. When children from the neighborhood visit Aunt Sydney's house, Baku pops out of the bag to share pictures from his magical Scrapbook. As Scrapbook makes the pictures come to life, children visit Mexico, India and Lebanon. Between making tostadas, dressing up in a sari, spinning the big globe, and learning to dance - Lebanese style! - kids will love this virtual adventure to faraway places and making friends around the world.
