Kids Under Construction Presents: Usborne Books & More

Kids Under Construction is pleased to announce a fun, new line of books that will be used in the office. Usborne and Kane Miller books are exceptionally engaging and educational books that we love reading at home, and we can't wait to share these amazing stories with you!

We were first introduced to Usborne Books at an aquarium bookstore on a family trip to Las Vegas. We spent the afternoon at the dolphin encounter, and quickly found ourselves walking through the gift shop. Amongst the toys and gadgets and souvenirs, I discovered a wall of engaging books that I was eager to take home. One of the books I grabbed for the office was How to draw Fairies and Mermaids. It's full of crafts and projects to do at home, and I knew it would give me some good ideas for our mermaid camp that summer.

My daughter absolutely LOVES puzzles, so I wanted to take a copy of the Under the Sea Jigsaw Book home as a souvenir. It's similar to a board book, but it has a puzzle on each left page with corresponding facts about the sea animals on the right page. I love that we can play and learn at the same time. It's also great for traveling because it's a toy AND a book.

And because a child can NEVER have enough stickers, I also grabbed a copy of the 1001 Things to spot in the Sea Sticker Book. My daughter loves stickers almost as much as she loves puzzles, so she had lots of fun reading about sea animals, finding the hidden sea animals, and then placing stickers in the appropriate habitats.

I recently looked into purchasing some additional books for our home library, but I couldn't find any at our local bookstores. Imagine my surprise when I hopped on Instagram and discovered Homeschooling With A Happy Heart's feed FILLED with Usborne books, lesson plans, thematic units based on the books, and a link to a website to order books online. JACKPOT!
