Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) August 8, 2006
Baby Hands Productions (http://www.MyBabyCanTalk.com), a company dedicated to creating educational products to promote early language development from simple gestures to first spoken words, today announced that it has partnered with KOCH Entertainment (http://www.kochcan.com), the dominant force in independent music and video distribution in Canada. The My Baby Can Talk DVD series, produced by Baby Hands Productions, will be released in Canada on September 26th.
My Baby Can Talk is a series of highly acclaimed and award winning videos that teaches babies and parents to communicate at an early age, reducing frustration and creating a special bond that is so important for healthy child development. This series inspires pre verbal babies to communicate using sign language and is designed to delight the senses while tapping into a baby’s natural language abilities. Set to classical music, My Baby Can Talk DVDs feature beautiful real world images, delightful puppet shows, colorful toys in motion and babies communicating with simple gestures.
Teaching hearing babies to communicate with simple gestures is one of the hottest parenting trends today and My Baby Can Talk is the most popular program available. Research has shown that babies are able to communicate at a much earlier age than they are able to speak and babies who use sign language tend to speak sooner with larger vocabularies, show an increase in IQ scores and engage in more sophisticated play. Parents are teaching their babies to sign as a means to reduce frustration and provide their babies with an emotional and educational head start.
“Because of its exceptional reputation and extensive channels, we are delighted to partner with KOCH Entertainment,” said Kathleen Waidhofer, Creative Director of Baby Hands Productions. “This partnership will allow us to meet the growing demand in Canada for our early language development products, providing more parents with important resources to be able to teach their preverbal babies to communicate.”
“We are very pleased to add the My Baby Can Talk DVDs to our educational media resources for young children,” said Dominique Zgarka, President of KOCH Entertainment. “We recognize the growing trend of teaching babies to communicate before they can speak and consider this award winning educational series to be a terrific way to address this trend.”
The My Baby Can Talk DVD series will be available from KOCH Entertainment with a pre-book date of August 29th and a street date of September 26th.
