Usborne Spotter’s Guides

Usborne Spotter's Guides I’ve always loved Usborne and DK books as the way they are done works well for readers and non-readers. There are so many pictures that my kids that can’t quite read yet are happy to sit and look at them for quite a while. My oldest son, when he first started to really read, was also happy to look at them as he was not intimidated by the short little blurbs. I’ve been drooling over these Usborne Spotter’s Guides for a while now and was thrilled when my mom handed me a big stack of them when she returned from her trip to England. They were a gift from a good friend of ours. As a homeschooling mama, I love these kinds of gifts. These books are fantastic, and they are small enough to throw in a backpack for when we go to the lake or the park. They are colourful and filled with tons of information, not to mention internet links. We love them and my kids have been pouring over them since the day we got them. They are a great addition to our nature section on the bookshelf. I am thankful for such a thoughtful and generous gift.

    How wonderful to hear your descriptions of these books!
    I am also a home school mama and love this type of book for my little ones to pour through! Just looking at the titles they remind me of the golden guides that we have grown to love. (We are loving the River Cottage cookbook too that I see on your sidebar!)

    We collect these too, my son is really keen on nature and loves spotting birds, identifying seaweed and trying to work out the constellations.
