Maybe it's time for the good old Sesame Street TV in 24 hour mode?
NOTE: This is for a child of a family friend, not my child. The parents DO NOT read to the child and he is falling behind (almost non-verbal). He is mainly Spanish speaking. 3 yr old. I wish I could be there everyday to read to the child, but they live hours away!
As a Christmas gift I would like to get the child a childproof reader, that reads TO him. Maybe even a bilingual one so he can learn Spanish and English. Like any baby, he reaches for his parents phones and remotes. So something that resembles a digital device. ALSO, the parents may not take time to load new books in a reader via computer. I am picturing the 90's kind where you slip a physical thin spiral bound book in the reader (and I can order more books for him as he ages).
I am heartbroken at his lack of speaking/reading skills. Any suggestions are welcome.
