Usborne Books and More


This giveaway is closed.
The winner is Sarah from The Fifth Street Academy.
Thanks to all who entered!


A friend of mine gave Jesse Bear several Usborne books for his third birthday. He loves books, so he was absolutely thrilled. I was thrilled, as well. These books were beautiful and great quality. I knew they would be able to withstand all of Jesse Bears "love".

The books Jesse Bear received are:




Describes life on a pirates ship.


Lift the flap book all about dinosaurs.

books are a great gift, especially Usborne books. We have quite a few of them. It's hard just to select a few, but Cranky Paws, Pet Vet #1 would be ideal for my beginner reader who loves cats and plans on being a vet. In the Castle would also be good. See, just too many to decide :-)

I *heart* Usborne books! My toddler loves the touchy-feely books, especially the luxury (big) ones. She adores her Luxury Touchy-Feely Mermaids. I could list tons of books I'd like, but narrowing it down, I'd probably get another one of those, like the Jungle Touchy-Feely book.

I love Usborne books. I recently heard a great review of Flip Flap Body Book, so I'd choose that. Great giveaway.

Chadwick said...

I love Usborne Books for several reasons. First the illustrations are awesome and the quality of the books are unbeatable. No child or adult can resist picking up an Usborne Book. Second they help kids learn without them even realizing. Third they have been a help to me homeschooling my kids. And last but not least they have enabled me to stay at home and homeschool my children through providing extra income by being an Usborne Books and More Independent Consultant. www.myubam.com/C3029

The Big Book of Playtime Activities looks really fun.
