Great Children’s Book for a Great Cause plus a Giveaway

As you can imagine we have a big variety of likes in my home when it comes to books.  My oldest daughters love mysteries, my son cannot get enough of super heroes, my middle daughter is all about princesses and ballet, and my youngest loves all things kitty cats.  I know that I can find books for each of my kids from Usborne in the variety of topics that my kids like.  I can usually tell when I come across an Usborne book.  They are quality books that have great, age appropriate, content and are full of great visuals and information. 

We recently got to review the Usborne book “That’s Not My Kitten…”  My youngest is a little obsessed with kitty cats these days and is thrilled with this book.  It is super adorable.  The pictures are very sweet and every page has a different texture to feel which makes it even more exciting for a two year old to read.

If you haven’t ever checked out Usborne books I really encourage you to do so.  You can find a large range of books for boys and girls from infants to teens.  They have books on dinosaurs, vehicles, bugs, ballerinas, mysteries, science, and many many more subjects.  Their books are also great to use for homeschooling.

From now until the end of June you can purchase Usborne books AND give to a great cause at the same time.  Jessica is donating all of her commissions this month to Kids Cancer Crusade (KCC).  KCC believes that no family should go through childhood cancer alone and they aim to be there for the parents and siblings as well as the patient.  They help out with various care packages, family events and linking families with other helpful organizations throughout treatment and beyond.  Check out their website and get inspired to help out the children and the parents that they support.  Remember that you can help out by purchasing Usborne books through any of the links in this post.

    An easier to answer question would be which books I *don't* like. The science activities books and anything about space or trains would be huge hits here right now.
