Itty-Bitty Borkworm Curriculum $300 Value! (CLOSED)

***Check out all our current giveaways in the sidebar!***

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review The Itty-Bitty Bookworm curriculum. Once I received the CD in the mail I quickly headed out the door with the intention to print off the entire Bo’s Curriculum  for ages 3-5 and the Bailey’ Curriculum for ages 18m-3 and put them each into a nice binder.


I laugh at this now because when I told that to the kind gentleman he kept asking me if I was sure I wanted to print it all – to make a long story short, I printed off the month of May for each curriculum and had my binders full!

The Itty-Bitty Bookworm Curriculum is a literature-based preschool curriculum on CD that is educational, child-friendly, organized, and easy to use. There is a wealth of information, but don’t let that overwhelm you. It is not necessary to do all of the activities-the beauty of the program is that parents can pick and choose the activities that best fit the needs of their children. Even though preschools use the curriculum, it is easily adaptable for moms to use with their little ones at home.

I operate a Montessori preschool out of my home and I find this curriculum to be a nice addition to our language activities! Each week of curriculum focuses on a different storybook and the activities coordinate with the themes of each book. I like this because I can pick out a specific “theme” that the children are interested in and do not have to follow in order. This works well in “following the lead of the child!”
I am really looking forward to using this curriculum regularly when our classes begin again in fall. My girls will be excited for me to surprise them with special themes to do throughout the summer too! What a great, flexible curriculum that I can make work for our unique needs!

    Oh my how I would just love to win this for my daughter. I try to follow online resources to teach her but don't have a curriculum so this would be absolutely fantastic for us.

    I learned that the creators are former childhood educators who really understand the importance of teaching children to love reading and books. I would select the Bo Curriculum which would be perfect for us. Thank you so much for the chance to win :)

    I learned that this material is easily adaptable to each child's skill level. Not a cookie cutter program, but a program specific to each child. AWESOME!

    I was looking on their site before I saw this! Would love to win this for my almost 3 year old. I've been looking for a great preschool curriculum!
    I love that there are options to fit this curriculum to your child's needs…and the option to buy one month at a time. .. but hopefully I'll win and that will be a non-issue!
    Christycross1977 at gmail dot com
    Thanks!

  4. Rachel @ Busy Mommy Media says:

    I love that it's a literature based program. I looked through some of the books they use and was thrilled to see that they've included a lot of our favorites!

    I'd love the Bo Curriculum. We homeschool and I have 2 preschoolers right now.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  5. JDaniel4's Mom says:

    I learned it is used in daycare centers and schools as well as homes.

    I would want Bailey.

  6. A Mom's Take says:

    I'd pick the bo cirriculum – and I learned it includes full colored games! :)

  7. Jackie H. says:

    I learned that this curriculum is based on head start standards– which means it will prepare my child for entering kindergarten. Since our parents as teachers program was just cut due to funding, I would love to have something to guide me in making sure my kids are meeting developmental milestones. I would use the Bailey curriculum. Great review, by the way!

  8. The Sunshine Crew says:

    I learned that they are starting Bo's World Units, which are Mini Units. The themes for the Bo's World Units include Our World, Frienda and Family, and Foods…
    These mini units would be especially awesome for a Montessori inspired program or homeschool.
    Some of the books they use for Bo's World mini units are already some of our favorites, such as Off We Go to Mexico! and
    We’re Sailing to Galapagos, both by Laurie Krebs.
    If we won, I would love the Bo's curriculum CD, or if it would even be possible to get the Bo's World Units, that would be fabulous.
    looks like a super giveaway prize!!! Thanks so much!

  9. Oh wow! How awesome is this?!!

    I would choose the Bo Curriculum since my youngest is 3.5yrs old.

    I learned that they offer Bible Story Units. I think these would be wonderful. My son goes to a Catholic school and we're planning on sending his sister there as well. We don't attend church as I can't find one that works well for us, so this would be wonderful to have our own little Sunday School on Sunday mornings.

  10. Teresha@Marlie and Me says:

    I learned that their curriculum is on a two year rotation so that no child should have to repeat any of the curriculums throughout his/her preschool experience.

    I'd get the Bailey Curriculum CD

  11. The Brandt Family says:

    I love the fact that they also have a Bible curriculum to add to the Bo or Bailey curriculum.

    I would likely get the Bo curriculum as my kids are 2 & 4.

  12. I love this. As a teacher I love the rotating curriculum!
    I would love to win the Bo curriculum.

  13. Jennifer says:

    I would love to have this! I have two young girls that I am constantly looking for things to teach them with!

    I learned that it's tailored to meet the needs or preschools, family childcare centers, child development centers and home school families! Also that it makes them have an advantage in school!

  14. AG'smoma says:

    I would love this! I learned that the cd also includes Learning Center Ideas for each week, such as dramatic play.

    abbysmoma @ gmail dot com

  15. We would love to enjoy this curriculum in our home too. We would like to invite Bo in, because we learned that he loves to read books and share the stories with his friends and family while they enjoy digging.

    dukkybird@googlemail.com

  16. Cool and chill Mom! says:

    Wow, these sound like what we need now! We will go for Bo just because our 3rd b-day party is around the corner!
    Love that Bo will have a world section as well.
    It is so good that this curriculum can be tailored to each kid, it makes a difference when you listen to children's needs. I think that makes them learn correctly at their pace.
    thanks for the chance and for exposing us to them!

  17. Oh, so glad I found your blog… I have been dying to try this curriculum! I learned that the creators are former childhood educators.

  18. Jess and the boys says:

    I love this! My little guys are still pretty little, but the Bailey curriculum would be great! I learned that it prepares kids for preschool, so that would be amazing for my almost-2-year-old! :)

    Thanks for such a great giveaway!
    I voted for you on Top Mommy Blogs and We're on the Fence! Good luck!

I learned about consulting services, the boutique and about the Bible story mini-units which look fun! I would love to have the Bo's Curriculum for my two youngest sons.

  22. I really appreciate that the curriculum is literature-based. I'd love to win the Bailey curriculum–what a great giveaway!

  28. Jenn Erickson says:

    I'm going back to school in the fall for my teaching credential, so the free printables (http://www.ittybittybookworm.com/?name=Site&catID=15859&parentID=14351)really appealed to me. For my five year old daughter, I'd definitely go with the "Bo". Thanks!

  29. Shairbearg says:

    I would choose the baily curriculum, and I learned about some resources I can use. I am just a mom who likes to teach my kids as much as possible on my own, and I think this curriculum would be good for my 2 yr old, and my speech delayed almost 4 yr old.

  30. Eco-Friendly and Frugal says:

    This is a great giveaway! I love that the program encourages reading, playing, and imagination. I learned from the website that some of the books I'm already very familiar with like "Is Your Mama a Llama" (one of my favorites!) so having a curriculum around it would be awesome!

    I'd choose the Bailey Curriculum.

    ecofriendlyandfrugal(at)gmail(dot)com

  31. I would choose the Bo curriculum and I learned that the creators of the programs were former Early Childhood Educators. Hopefully, that's a good thing.
