Usborne Books ~ Giveaway ~ 2 Winners!

Congratulations #94-Julie and #16-Stephanie...YOU WON!!!

image

Usborne books are awesome. I drool over the tables at homeschool conferences, I thumb through the catalogs, and envy my friends who have tons of their books. When Stacie contacted me to see if I would be interested in hosting a review/giveaway I said YES, happily! When we got the review products in the mail it was pure joy! She generously sent us these awesome products {click on the images to see details}…

image image image image

We loved everything so very much, but I must say the book, In the Castle has been read SO many times already. Seriously…a new VERY FAVORITE BOOK around here.

I love this shot of Ladybug asking me to help her get the puzzle out. She loves these books {we have 2 like this}. Krash still loves them too! IMG_4680

Pac Man enjoys his USA States and Capitals Learning Wrap. He said it is MUCH better than writing on a worksheet! We have been studying USA Geography a ton lately, so this was perfect for him! IMG_4984

Krash and I are looking forward to working through the 123 Sticker Book together during our preschool time! We are just so thankful for the wonderful items Stacie sent to us! I highly recommend each item!

I have a friend who sells Usborne books & I had a party a few months back. I love these books; so unique. My favorites are the look & say. we have the backyard but would love to have vacation or any other one really. I'm also getting my son one of the learning wrap thingies soon. I'm excited for that!

It really is a toss up between the "Around the World Sticker Book" and the "See Inside Houses Long Ago" book, but I think that I would go for the sticker book first.
