Encyclo-Beanie-a is the first in the Collect and Learn interactive book series which inspires collectors of all ages to expand their minds, while engaging them in their favorite pastime, collecting Beanie Babies! Filled with Beanie and animal kingdom facts, figures, classifications, and creative play ideas, Encyclo-Beanie-a is a must have for the life long learner in each of us. Over 246 pages of full color, outstanding graphics and pictures makes this one of the largest, if not the largest, Beanie books on the market. As a bonus, Encyclo-Beanie-a has included a first ever interactive Beanie CD and a limited edition Peace poster. This free bonus allows the reader to view a Beanie talk show hosted by child authors Tiffany Foucht and Rachel Cook on their personal computer. Also included are 180 different Beanie Babies and their poems and encyclo-bits read by a team of child readers with sound effects and background music. This makes learning fun and enjoyable. No other Beanie book rivals Encyclo-Beanie-a in quality and appeal. This is a must have for all children, Beanie collectors, and educators alike.
