Enter To Win Your Choice of Usborne Books! #backtoschool #bts #groovygiveaway




It's back to school time! To celebrate, I am giving you the opportunity to add some beautiful award-winning Usborne and Kane Miller books to your home library! 

I have been a longtime fan of Usborne books, and use many of them for my kid's homeschool curriculum. Our favorites are the Usborne encyclopedias which are an amazing bargain starting at $9.99 and are offered in paperback or hardcover for a little more. The encyclopedias are internet linked, so after reading about a particular subject, you can view videos, downloadable photos, and additional resources. They make the perfect companion for research papers for elementary to high school!


 


This year, my boys (who are fascinated with computers) will also be learning how to code using the Usborne book Coding For Beginners Using Scratch. This book, in conjunction with the Scratch website (a free, online program developed by MIT which is widely used in elementary schools), allowing them to get inside the code of their computer and create simple games and animations on screen.

This hardcover and spiral bound book (also an amazing bargain at $14.99!) is very durable and has bright and colorful pictures with easy to follow instructions for absolute beginners! The age suggestion for this book is 9 years and up, but my 7 year old can easily follow instructions and his 6 year old brother will be able to complete the activities with a little help. 

 Also included in the book is a glossary of terms and definitions that you can quiz your child with. I really cannot get over how entertaining this book and the games are. My boys love playing app games on the phone and tablet, which I try to limit as much as possible, but I do allow them to spend an hour or two with the Coding For Beginners challenges because they are gaining an understanding of how to create games like those that they love and get the satisfaction of watching that creation come to life with sound and music!

Of course, there are plenty of other wonderful books for every age from infant to teen that encourages play, literacy, and imagination. You can view just a small sample in the video below.
