Get to Know Carmen Sidbeck

Hello, my name is Miss Carmen, I am an Early Childhood Educator who is a strong advocate for early literacy & and play! My hope is that my Bookish Sensory Play Kits will help invite open-ended play, and allow our young readers to use their imagination while immersing their senses.

Early childhood literacy is one of my passions!!! I have always loved working with children using hands-on activities & and a good 📕book! By using sensory materials it helps to draw your child into play that is meaningful to them.

Follow my Instagram account and check out my Etsy store to get more information. I love sharing tips and tricks on how to teach your child using hands-on play. Come over and take a peek.

My other passions:

  • Hubby 😉

  • Granddaughters 🤗🤗

  • Gardening and raising monarch butterflies 🦋

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning.

"I am in love with this little bee play kit! My 2.5 year old had so much fun exploring and gained so many skills through the items supplied. So much attention to detail and so much discussion and learning through play! I can’t wait to purchase another kit soon!"

"Love this item. Everything was nicely packed and it arrived quickly. I am a Preschool teacher and my kiddos love it. It is the only thing they want to do."

“Excellent playdoh!!! Soft enough for my four-year-old to play with by herself, easy to wash, and did not stain her hands! The container is the perfect size for her to open on her own. Miss Carmen truly has the best interests of ALL children at heart with the launch of this Etsy store.”
