Giveaway with Usborne Books (Pt 2)

If you followed my last post, you know that we"ll be talking about Usborne's amazing books in a four part series. Follow along with each post to earn more entries into the book giveaway! Your kids will love everything in their online catalog - good luck!

The older my kids get, the more they want to touch and hold and handle everything.
Toddlers always say, "No mommy, I do it myself!"
My first introduction to Usborne books were their detailed sticker books. A couple years ago I ordered a Princess Sticker book and a Nativity scene sticker book as Christmas gifts. I was excited to see how detailed the stickers were, since they matched the page designs exactly. The little activities like dressing the characters and building the castle made the sticker books turn into activity books. Super fun for kids (and mommies.)

A few months ago I met Ruth, a Usborne book representative. Simon was playing with her book display at a fundraiser extravaganza and fell in love with a dinosaur sticker book. (Obviously, that book came home with us.) And now, I'm happy to announce that Ruth is sponsoring my next giveaway!! Woo-hoo!
Ruth is also contributing on the blog, and over the next four posts, she'll describe all the fun ways that Usborne books can enrich your family. These amazing books are not only educational and fun, but they are quality-made inexpensive items. Durable books that don't cost a fortune? A parent's dream come true, right?

Do you have a hands-on learner? How about one that loves stickers? Sometimes those stickers can just drive mom crazy, but did you know that they are educational and GOOD for your kids? What?!?
Sticker books help kids develop fine motor skills, sorting skills, visual discrimination, counting skills, one-to-one correspondence, and language development. All that in a sticker book! Who loves sticker books?

Perfect for school age kids and their emerging hobbies!

My kids played with the "Under the Sea" sticker book for months. It was perfect for quiet time while the baby napped.

Usborne Books & More also carries a unique series of books called Wind-up and Pull-Back books! These are unique, fun and great for learning! Did you know winding up a toy strengthens your pincer muscles in your hand? These muscles are vital for developing strong fine motor skills required for writing and scissor skills. These books are also chock full of directional vocabulary such as “along,” “around,” and “besides.” If you would like to see these fun books in action, check out this short video. Plus, there is actually action. These books have moving parts - in the video you'll see a pirate ship actually sailing the ocean (in a book!) Amazing right?

Do you have a child that likes to draw? Create? Needs assistance with developing fine motor skills while learning their ABCs and 123s? Have you ever struggled to keep your kids busy on a plane, in the car, or while you are waiting for an appointment, lessons or at a restaurant? Usborne Books & More will entertain your child, electronics free! Watch this video to learn more about all Usborne has to offer your busy little ones, and earn an entry into the giveaway.
