I received these items for free to review. However, all opinions are my own.
I recently received several Usborne Books from my sister-in-law, Megan, a new homeschooler who also runs her own Usborne Books business. To be honest, when she became a consultant, I had never heard of them before. However, I really had heard of them, I just didn't know it. Alan and I went to a Christmas craft show last year and there was a woman there selling these really cute and educational children's books. Come to find out that they were Usborne!
Usborne Books & More offers high quality books that are great for all ages, all interests and reading levels, homeschool studies, independent or family reading, gifts and more!
Here are just a few features of these books:
- Step-by-step explanations of the "How’s and Why’s".
- Cutaway illustrations so children can get the inside view.
- Pages filled with activity - a lot of material to explore on each topic.
- Straightforward text consistently positioned below each picture simplifying the reading exercise-the use of short sentences encourages the child to read.
While they are primarily children's books, they're also used in college courses. There are over 1400 titles to choose from so there is definitely something for everyone.
I chose a book about pirates for Ewan and one about the zoo for Cecily. Ewan keeps asking to read both his and Cecily's books and hasn't really wanted to put his down since I gave it to him. Ewan is obsessed with pirates and I love that this book doesn't gloss over what pirates are - part of the story talks about how they'll get in trouble if they're found with the treasure! Cecily's book talks about the different animals and parts of the zoo. It asks you to find different things in the pictures, which is engaging and will definitely help with her growing vocabulary.
