I received several books from Cara Crisostomo the Usborne Book Consultant for this review, all opinions are my own.
I have absolutely fallen in love with Usborne Books. They have books for every kid in the family! Leah has been really into sea animals lately and I couldn’t wait to share the book Big Book of Big Sea Creatures with her! Leah was absolutely fascinated by this colorful book of sea creatures. We sat on the couch and went through each one and she loved it so much she brought it up to bed! The book actually has 4 pages that fold out and the pictures are incredible!
The girls also really love the Acorns and Stew Too book, in fact Leah wants to try reading it on her own tomorrow! She loves the simple illustrations and it’s perfect for fall right now. Usborne Books really has books for everyone and for every occasion. We were sent several Christmas books and the girls fell in love with the Advent Calendar. What is so different about this advent Calendar is that there are so many cool illustrations and the girls get to color one in each day!
One thing I love about Usborne Books is the variety of books that they have. One thing I love to give at Christmas and Birthdays are books. My girls get lots of toys and little things like that but I love books. I love to receive them and to give them. Usborne Books is the perfect place to buy them. As I have been working with Cara Crisostomo the consultant with Usborne Books, she came up with a great list of perfect Christmas Items for those on your Christmas List! She is so knowledgeable about all the books on Usbornes book site! Here are some of her favorites that she suggested:
The Busy Books are perfect for any little kid! We received the Ladybug one and it’s great! It has 4 different pages and the little train, bug etc. travels along the track of each page!
The Shine the Light Books are awesome! We have the Secrets of the Apple Tree and there are 2 more besides that one. You take a flashlight and shine it on different pages and it shows the “secret” or hidden picture. Those books would be great for any age child, even older ones! “Spot the tiny shrimps hiding in the sand, see a shy crab underneath a rock and watch a jewel-like anemone open its tentacles in this beautiful book of nature’s hidden habitats. Just hold the page up to a light to discover it all.” (Usborne Books Website)
The perfect gift for babies and toddlers would be the 9 tiny board books! “This collection of nine tiny board books is perfect for little hands and for young children learning about farm animals. Each book is beautifully illustrated and designed to encourage beginning readers.” (Usborne Book website) It comes in a cute little box and they stack like blocks too!
Leah absolutely loves making Paper Airplanes with her Dad and this book would be perfect for hours of fun!
“Packed with brilliantly designed paper planes to make and fly, ranging from fighter planes to space rockets and creepy flying bugs. This book features four different models to perfect, each with their own concise instructions on how to best fold and fly them. Printed on special tear-out pages, each of the 100 planes features a unique design.” (Usborne Books Website)
Usborne Books also sells some books that the stories and pictures are just gorgeous! I love the Illustrated Grimms Fairy Tales, love these stories! “This beautifully illustrated volume contains fifteen of the captivating tales collected by the brothers Grimm. Within are stories of enchanted castles, deep, dark forests and a host of extraordinary characters for you to share and enjoy. Stories include “Hansel and Gretel”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Rumpelstiltskin”, “Tom Thumb” and “The Frog Prince” as well as a short biography of the brothers themselves.” (Usborne Books)
