I’ve mentioned in a couple of posts that I’ve discovered a local Usborne Books Seller and I’ve picked up a couple of lovely books from her.
I love the fact that by setting up as an independent Usborne Books Seller she is able to earn a bit of money around looking after her young son. It’s also a big plus that the books are brilliant. I can’t think that there are too many children who don’t own a book published by Usborne. We are huge fans of the ‘That’s not my…’ series of books as well as the new ‘Look inside…’ series.
My local seller, Clare, asked me if I would take a look at a couple of books for her and also host a giveaway. I’m a bit reluctant to actually give these books away as they are gorgeous!
Peep inside the Castle is fab – and I’m now after all the rest of this series of books as it is just brilliant. The book takes you through a castle and lets the reader explore all sorts of things. Mine and Mr. D’s favourite bit was dressing the Knight – a really inspired way to help small children understand just how much they wore.
The book is packed with all sorts of little details and we spent ages looking through this. We enjoyed it so much that I’m now planning to take them both to a Castle when Damian is next off work so we can explore a real one and follow up again with this book.
There is a vine here to give some idea of the book but is honestly doesn’t do it justice. It is just brilliant. I’ve already added four more from this series onto the birthday/Christmas wish list as this is such a great book.
The second book, The Big Book of Colours is probably the most comprehensive colour book I have come across so far. It is a big sturdy book that takes you from basic colours all the way up to mixing colours. It is perfect for me as it covers both E and D and their individual stages of learning.
The vine here gives you an idea of how it is made up. The children have loved spending time looking at this. There is a lot of stuff going on in this book and I love how the pages give snippets of information about colours and their associations. Lovely for older children too to think about what colours mean to them.
So…. the lovely Clare has a lovely book bundle up for grabs… the books pictured below will go to one lucky winner.
