Usborne Book Show Review and Giveaway!

If you are a homeschooler then you have definitely heard of Usborne books!  They are truly the books kids love to read!   My friend Tara and I have gotten together and worked out a really fun giveaway I'm really excited about! Really;)  I am hosting an Usborne Book show at my house on Sunday, and there will be a drawing for a free book if you come to that.  But, I didn't want to leave my wonderful blog readers out...so......we will be doing an Usborne Book giveaway on the blog, too!  

Come see what Usborne Books has to offer online!  Award-winning, traditional titles, along with the following new items:

  • Brand new First Reading set for beginning readers
  • New Lift and Look Books (Dinosaurs, Construction Sites, Planes)
  • Innovative New Coloring Books
  • Stroller Books for the wee ones
  • Sing-along Christmas Carols with CD
  • Newest installments in the popular Conspiracy 365 series for pre-teens
  • Wind-up Pirate Ship Book
  • New Sticker Books (Airport, Soccer, Knights, Building Sites, and more)
  • Christmas Cards to Color
  • And a new favorite:  That's Not My Tiger! 
Also coming soon is a fantastic record-along book of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.  You can leave as is, you can record your voice reading for your child, or you can record your child's voice reading for Grandma, Uncle Pete serving overseas, etc.  These books make wonderful Christmas or Birthday gifts too!
 

And now for the giveaway.....
Tara has generously given me $25 worth of books to giveaway to my readers! There are 4 different titles.  We read them all yesterday as soon as we got them. They were all great!
"Tadpoles and frogs" is packed with great pictures and all sorts of information about frogs! Some of it you already know, but some of it is wild stuff you've never heard before! And all of it is presented in a way that grabs the attention of the reader! Dancing Grit (who is 8) kept 
saying,"Mom, listen to this!" This is truly the most excited I have ever seen her get about a book!

"I can draw animals" has step by step instructions on how to draw about 16 animals.  These are really easy to follow steps!  Sporty Grit (who is 6) flew through  each one...as you can see!
Even Goofy Grit (she is 5) did a great job with it!

"Going to the Dentist", from the Usborne First Experiences collection, was super detailed about what a trip to the dentist entails! It didn't leave anything out and would have them well prepared in advance!

"Ted and Friends" , an easy words to read book, has four silly, entertaining, phonics based stories.  These are great for early readers or for exposing pre-readers to rhyming words and sounds.  I personally would love to have this one  to  read to my pre-readers because I just love anything that rhymes! 
All $25 worth of these amazing books will go to one lucky reader!  There are 16 ways to enter!

It is way to hard just to try and pick one book I like at Usborne. And with 3 kids and one due on the 7th-way to many different interests. I do know that no matter what book is on the site, one of my kids would read it. I have been trying to foster that in them since birth. But they do like bugs,dinos, and any kind of mystery.
