A few years back I was introduced to Usborne Books & More and their line of quality children’s books. Over the years our collection has steadily grown and these are a favorite for all the kids in our family. No matter the ages or interests of your kids there are so many Usborne Books to choose from that you’re sure to find some good matches.
To help you get started here are some of our family’s favorites…
Shine-A-Light Books :: These books are both educational and entertaining! Kids love shining a light through the pages to see the ‘hidden’ images and even if they cannot yet read kids who can be trusted with a flashlight and paper pages are sure to be entertained!
“That’s Not My” Board Books :: These are a great book for those little ones who are just as likely to lick their books as look at them. My 18-month-old has a nice little collation of these tactile books and they are always the first ones he grabs off the bookshelf.
Sticker Books :: Usborne Books has a wide variety of sticker books that include everything from Fairies to Astronauts. My girls LOVE their Historical Sticker Dolly Dressing books and have actually kept them because they love looking back over the pictures and reading about those particular periods in time.
Illustrated Stories :: another great line of books that each include multiple illustrated stories along a theme. Illustrated Stories form Aesop is a favorite around here and Illustrated Stories from Shakespeare was just cracked open this week. There are many different themes that are appropriate for a wide variety of ages.
My friend Paula Slabbekoorn now supplies my Usborne Books & More needs and has opened up a party for our readers to order through (there is no compensation to me as I’m not ‘hosting’ the party for rewards). Simply select the party labeled Simple Moms Shoppers when checking out at Paula’s Usborne Books & More site. If you want to make sure to receive your order in time for Christmas make sure to order earlier rather than later, Paula recommends placing orders by December 3 to ensure delivery before Christmas. Once the Simple Moms Shoppers party reaches $100 in sales anyone who made a purchase in the party will be entered to win $20 in free books as well (all handled directly through Paula so no entry form necessary)!
