Julia Pimsleur Levine s Little Pim: Foreign Language and Fun language-immersion series follows the daily activities of the titular animated panda, presented here in French (with separate programs available in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese). Comprised of seven five-minute episodes focused on foods, drinks, utensils, etc., Eating and Drinking combines clips of Little Pim engaged in activities ranging from hand washing to making a tall sandwich, coupled with real-life segments of youngsters and family members cooking and eating together. Featuring onscreen circling of specific items, as well as instant repetition, the program also includes optional English subtitles for words and phrases. With a projected 12 titles in 12 different languages slated for release over the next 18 months, this initial volume in a new language introduction series for toddlers and preschoolers is a promising start. Recommended.

Little Pim is designed specifically for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and their parents. It uses immersion and interaction in a fun and engaging way with a cute little animated panda, named Pim, as the main character who guides the learning. Each learning section starts with Pim in a short animated skit, then transitions to real children going through everyday activities that are narrated by Pim. The voice of Pim is crisp and clear and the quality of the video is superb.
I've bought a lot of French language learning DVDs, and none come close to Little Pim. My (almost) three year old really likes the little panda and his bamboo soup, or should I say, "soupe de bamboo" :-), and just this morning at breakfast, used a phrase from one of the DVDs.
I would highly recommend this DVD set to anyone interested in teaching their toddlers and preschoolers a foreign language.
I have enjoyed Pimsleur for adults (learning Italian) and find their methods to work just as well with children (introduction of a word, followed by lots of use in different contexts).
I have started giving Little Pim videos for gifts to people with 1 or 2 year olds. I can't praise it enough.
It is easy to understand what Little Pim is saying and what that word refers to.
It things kids do all the time being done by kids and narrated by a cute Panda.
1 ) During each episode Little Pim has a quick animated little silly cartoon
2) followed by videos of kids doing normal activities while Little Pim says what they are doing or what they have in the language of the video.
3) After Little Pim reviews everything then that has happened over the last 5 mins.
Then steps 1 to 3 repeat with a new words/videos and cartoon.
My son watches between 10 - 30 mins at each meal and before bed/nap time.
He loves Little Pim he gets very excited about it. (Granted all he watches is Little Pim or about once a week we will let him watch a Disney or Dreamworks movie in French)
