Kaye hosts the show along with my zany friend, Gerdy Giraffe (a puppet character played by Faith DeWerd, one of their Training Coaches).
Each episode introduces a zoo animal, a letter, and letter sounds using 3D Augmented Reality technology. Some of the shows include a “Come Alive Surprise,” which allows children to use a mobile device to scan an image shown in the show and bring the day’s animal into their home. The free Journals alive™ mobile app is compliments of Alive Studios and works on most tablets and smartphones. This interactive experience breaks new ground in distance learning and presents endless possibilities for young children. The shows also include the reading of an original short rhyming story that teaches a social-emotional growth skill. These stories can be downloaded and printed for kids to read and color at home.…Read More
