I met Ke’o back in the day at college. We had a mutual friend and brushed by each other at times since we were both in the Education Department. We became friends on Facebook and I have enjoyed watching her become a mom of one of the cutest little guys in town! Not only is she a third grade teacher but she also moonlights as an Usborne Sales Consultant. OK. Normally, I sort of glaze over at this point, but if you haven’t heard of Usborne before, then you are truly missing out! I quickly learned they have some of the best. books. ever. Whether you have littles of your own or love to love on other littles in your life, you really should consider adding Usborne to your gift giving. My bubby loves them and we really enjoy reading them. When I first started digging into Usborne, I was a little overwhelmed about which options to go with. Ke’o is here today to give you a list (I LOVE HER!) of what books to start with as you begin your Usborne journey. Here is Ke’o. ENJOY!
Babies love to chew, drool, and crawl all over their books. This is how they explore literacy! Your books should be sturdy, as well as engaging, for your little one. I know your child will enjoy all of these amazing and affordable titles that Usborne Books and More has to offer! Our books are also backed by a lifetime half-price replacement guarantee.
5) With brightly colored, high-contrast pictures, this book is sure to engage your baby’s attention! As your child grows, he/she will love tracing the tactile finger trails, lifting the flaps, and running their fingers over the touchy-feely areas in this delightful book. Two other personal play book favorites by Usborne Books and More are “Baby’s Very First Touchy-Feely Colors Play Book” and “Baby’s Very First Playbook: Animal Words.”
4)I love that Usborne Books and More makes little books for little hands! My Wild Animal World is a collection of nine tiny board books that fit into a cute book shaped box with a magnetic closure. In each little book, a wild animal tells its name, where it lives, what its baby is called, what it eats, and what it says. These chunky books are super durable and can be stacked like blocks. Your child can also practice matching by using the pictures in the box to place each book back into the correct slot. We also offer these other beautifully illustrated board book sets: “My Farm Animal World,” “I Can Count,” and “My First 100 Words.”
3) This adorable and engaging board book uses questions and flaps to introduce colors. On the left hand side of each spread, Little Red Penguin is traveling by a different mode of transportation with an animal friend. On the right side of the book, the reader is asked a question about the image on the left. Answers are creatively hidden beneath each question by large, durable flaps. Such a fun way to help your child learn colors, animals, and types of transportation! We have three other titles in this fantastic collection that will teach your little one words, shapes, and numbers.
2) Slide and See Animals is my personal favorite of the three titles we currently offer in our fantastic and fun Slide and See series. These books are full of vivid colors and are perfect for developing essential motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Your baby will love sliding the panels and revealing the secret images hiding below!
1)That’s Not My Puppy is just one of the many, MANY titles in our super popular board books series entitled, “That’s Not My…” These stories follow a little mouse as he looks for his animal, person, etc. Along the way he encounters others who are NOT what he is searching to find. These adorable books contain bright, black lined pictures for developing eyes and touchy-feely patches for your baby to explore different textures and develop sensory and language awareness.
Reading is SO important for our children’s future — and luckily, these books make it FUN! Building a love of reading starts in those first months and years of life.
