Did you know Canada.. have you heard of Usborne Canada? It's a favourite of mine to browse for book ideas.
Founded by Peter Usborne over 30 years ago, Usborne Publishing revolutionized children's publishing in the UK. Since then they have expanded across the world, including into Canada, and is one of the world’s leading children’s book publishers.
Usborne Books at Home is a Canadian home based business where Usborne consultants sell books to friends, family, schools and more. You may know our favourite consultant on the web - Mama Moe of Ask Mama Moe!! Be sure to send her a note for any and all book orders, a fantastic gift idea for this Holiday Season. Books are treasured forever, they don't break, they don't get boring or old, they are friends for life until you can pass them on to the next little one to enjoy.
Mama Moe was lovely enough to give us a some tips on the latest and most popular books that would be perfect gifts!
See Inside Your Body is a best seller and babulous flap book that reveals the inner workings of the human body! I bet my boys would think this was sooo cool! :-)
Around the world is a Sticker Dolly Dressing book where each page shows dolls from around the world, with over 250 stickers to dress them in their traditional costumes such as a beautiful silk saris, colourful robes from Tibet and more.
How Big Was A Dinosaur is a really fun book where Pipkin, a little penguin, asks very BIG questions! Just how big was a dinosaur? As big as a car? As big as a house? Includes a huge fold-out poster, beautifully illustrated to show just how big a dinosaur was in comparison to little Pipkin.
One that I think looks like a lot of fun to read leading up to the Holidays is That's not my snowman... a touchy-feely book with simple, repetitive text. The whole series was awarded "Best Buy" by readers of Prima magazine.
Don't forget to send Mama Moe a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to order these books or any books found through Usborne!!
