Description & Use
The Poetry Pals Interactive Literacy Learning Center comes
- a tree bookshelf organizer,
- all 14 puzzle shaped poem story boardbooks,
- an animated read along video,
- 2 carrying cases,
- a coloring book
- a natured shape pop-out puzzle, and

The tree bookshelf organizer is a perfect
mini-library and interactive reading center that provides children

responsibility, visual matching and shape identification
- The learning center tree mounts directly to a
wall in the home or classroom and doesn't take up any of your
floor space. The tree may also be mounted on a board to make
it portable so that it can be moved from one room to

- There is a total of 14 reality-based poem
story boardbooks on the tree and the character education theme
and small lesson plan is found on the back of each book.
There is also an animated interactive read-along
video that visually and audibly reads each of the 14 books. Eleven
of the 14 books are read by children and three of the books are
read by our host Angee Hughes (who is Wanda on the children's
television series "Wishbone").
- When each book is introduced on the video, it
glows and gently tumbles from the tree, which signals the
child to remove that particular book from the tree. The words
are highlighted as they are read and the rhyming word glows a
different color. The pages turn visually, signaling the child
when to turn each page. After the reading of the book, it then
visually tumbles back to the tree, which again signals the
child to return their book where it belongs.
- This process repeats itself until all 14
books have been read, which provides 36 minutes of interactive
- Of course, the learning center is a very
effective tool with or without the video interaction.
Also included in the complete learning center,
along with the tree, 14 books and interactive read-along video, is
a nature-shaped pop-out puzzle and a reproducible coloring book.
