Baku the Travel Bug says, "Hola! Namaste! And Hello!" Baku is a loveable travel bug who lives inside the travel bag of his best friend and travel partner, Aunt Sydney. When children from the neighborhood visit Aunt Sydney’s house, Baku pops out of the bag to share pictures from his magical Scrapbook. As Scrapbook makes the pictures come to life, children visit Mexico, India and Lebanon. Between making tostadas, dressing up in a sari, spinning the Big Globe, and learning to dance – Lebanese style! – kids will love this virtual adventure to faraway places and making friends around the world.
- Winner of a 2005 Parents' Choice Approved Award,
- Endorsed with an all-star rating by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media,
- Critically acclaimed in Parenting, Scholastic Parent & Child, Booklist, and other media.
- Seal of Approval recipient from The National Parenting Center, which gave this review:
"Far too often these days, cultural awareness takes a back seat to other concerns. That should not diminish its importance when raising our children. Baku the Travel Bug celebrates the diversity that makes us different and yet the same. This is a very, very good video that features an adorable host, Baku, who takes us along on journeys to Mexico, Lebanon and India through his talking scrapbook where pictures magically spring to life. Our testers gave high marks to the production values as well as the acting, praising its ability to hold the audience's attention throughout, while teaching some wonderful lessons."
