“Narrated by three geometric dudes named Rollie Roundman, Trollie Triangle, and Rockford Rectangle, this fast-paced program works on many levels and will be enjoyed by younger children. Its structure is good, starting out with the basics (such as counting to five, or presenting the concept of a circle) and then moving to more advanced territory (counting to 20, and examining pentagons). The best segments deal with counting and shapes. The sound is clear throughout, and the lyrics are fun and informative." – School Library Journal
“Rock ‘N Learn has got the genre of educational DVD’s down to an art form and this timeless classic is no exception. It is perfect for kids learning their ABC’s and how to read. The graphics are lively while the songs are catchy and stick in your head. Parents felt that it packed a huge educational wallop without being overbearing. Your pre-reader is introduced to letters through Rock ‘N Learn’s tried and true techniques of combining songs, animation and fun. Writing is also part of the lesson plan, showing how to print both capital and lower case letters. Numbers aren’t forgotten, 0-9 get their time to shine as well. The consensus among testers was that their children came away with a true understanding of letters and their sounds, which will serve them well as they make the transition to kindergarten.” – The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
“Kids enjoy having this book repeatedly read to them to a degree one might expect of a favorite bedtime story. That's because the playful, rhyming sentences that appear on each page generate fun and excitement in readers and listeners alike. The first and last pages feature the entire alphabet in upper and lower case letters. The rest of the book showcases one letter per page (written large in the upper left corner), and includes several illustrations of objects that start with that letter. The rhyming text at the bottom of each page includes the names of those objects in the same order that the images appear on the page, making it easy for kids to turn their attention (or point their finger) to each object as it is named. These cleverly integrated factors make for a highly enjoyable, energizing, and engaging experience for youngsters, one that expands and reinforces their knowledge of letters, sounds, and vocabulary.” – Tillywig Award Winner
“Rock ‘N Learn’s Colors, Shapes & Counting is a great learning tool for toddlers who are starting to recognize and understand these educational building blocks. The book is made out of sturdy cardboard that can withstand a lot of wear and tear from an active toddler. The illustrations throughout the book are very colorful and animated. We have seen this so many times from Rock ‘N Learn that we have come to expect it. Their system is simple, engage and captivate the age group and then use that focus to teach. There is a superb section for parents that outlines the best way to use the book with their children. Testers found the book to be a real interactive experience that makes effective use of rhymes and a point-and-name technique. All in all this is an excellent book to introduce babies and toddlers to the world of colors, the concepts of shapes, and simple counting.– The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
"I would just like to thank Rock-N-Learn for helping our twin boys who have been diagnosed with autism learn their ABC's, Numbers and Colors! I think your videos are amazing and even more amazed how my boys memorized the words that you put on the screen to get them to learn their sounds and colors! By showing the words on the screen both boys learned how to spell almost ALL of the words! The biggest example I can give you is: x makes zz sounds as in xylophone!!! Hearing my 6 year old twins who speak only single words spell the word ‘xylophone’ brought my husband and I to tears!!!" – Katina Towne
