As an educational storybook Broadway Barks enables kids between the ages 2 and 8 to expand their vocabulary at a tremendous speed. It will also help them develop a strong affinity towards animals and companions in general. Reading stories based on animals stimulates children’s linguistic and intellectual abilities while at the same time nurturing their emotional sensibilities as well as encouraging their development and growth.
