Today’s book is an exciting work of non-fiction FILLED with flaps and pop-ups! DK Canada’s How to Measure Everything!
This sturdy, colourful book is an amazing visual tour of first measurements. We love the interactive qualities! Rulers, scales, clocks, seasonal wheels and thermometers ALL have parts that lift, pop-up, turn or move for little hands to try. And the grand finale is a fully realized pop-up room with things to measure!
Even toddler smalls can get a first sense of the basics here thanks to the bright, easy-to-understand visuals! We think this book is great for your small’s library and a great resource for a teacher classroom as well! Recommended 3.5+up
Today’s #nonfiction book is How to Be a Big Kid via DK Canada. This adorable tour of all things “big kid” is packed with colourful visuals and helpful tips. We loved the inclusive family types mentioned and the many topics covered from personal hygiene to stewarding the planet to keeping your heart happy! A book to grow with your small.
We love this as a gentle guide for new parents as their baby heads into independent toddlerhood. We love this for preschoolers aged 4 & up who will delight in how much they know already about being the coveted “big kid”. And we think this book would be great for preschool teachers and home daycare workers to inspire themes and activities for their smalls! A wonderful book to guide our littles towards their first day of school.
Today in our continuing “Spring is Sprung” reviews for DK Canada’s FAB non-fiction for kids books: Forest Life & Woodland Creatures a wonderful collection of nature facts and fun, hands-on activities to do with your small!
What we loved:
- the visual layout with loads of things to spot and name
- the simple categories of seasons, animals and plant life perfect for preschool and up
- the fun and varied activities (crafts! food! costume masks!)
We chose the make bear masks as a certain small member of my household is in love with “going on a bear hunt” right now. He was pretty excited to pour glue all over anything and surprised me by meticulously sticking brown “fur” on his bear mask for a solid seven minutes!
Recommended for smalls 2.5 & up and their nature loving grown-ups of all ages!
