4 New Book Recommendations For Back To School {Giveaway}

The boys are going back to school this week, and we received a shipment of DK Canada books just in time.

Our youngest starts full-day kindergarten this year and the “How to Be a Big Kid” book has been perfect to help introduce some topics to help him prepare for all the changes.  We love all the cute illustrations and step by step instructions that are easy to read and explain. Super-handy book!

4 New Book Recommendations For Back To School


Both my children love asking questions, and they are curious about everything. They want to know the how, where and why all the time. Enter the “DK Children’s Encyclopedia”. This book has kept our almost 8-year-old entertained for hours. The book is packed with essential facts on a multitude of subjects, including technology, nature, history, space, science, animals and more. The book is also filled with beautiful illustrations and photography to make it fun and easy to absorb.

Our eldest is starting grade 3 this September, and they do a lot of spelling work at school. The “Spell Check Canadian Edition” book is going to be very handy and useful for him. The book has keyword lists and tricky word lists that are helpful when practising and for extra home support. Great way to learn useful Canadian spelling rules as well.

Buy it: Amazon

If your children are learning French, an illustrated dictionary is always a must-have. The “First French Dictionary” is a wonderful first reference book for little ones.  It contains over 2,000 words and definitions, and it is filled with beautiful and colourful images and photographs.  Super easy to navigate as well.

  41. So the middle ground is VPS, or Virtual Private server, where a server is basically split
    into parts and also you spend on power over one part and you’ll be able to do virtually whatever you desire to that part.

    In situations where speed, accuracy and delivery are mission critical, it’s important to have immediate, and isolated, access to
    your documentation and customer records.
    A virtual server will manage to benefit you regarding flexibility and security.

  42. Rattling superb visual appeal on this website, I’d rate it 10.

  43. Right here is the perfect blog for everyone who really wants to find
    out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually
    would want to?HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been discussed
    for many years. Great stuff, just great!
