As they follow the trails, whether straight, wavy, or loopy, toddlers will lead the animals to their homes and the tractor back to barn. Peepholes on each spread show which animal will need help next, and a mix-and-match game at the end of the book with four glittery trails puts all the learned skills together, prompting toddlers to match each animal to its correct destination.

Follow the Trail: Farm is perfect for hands-on learning and sensory play, and teaches preschoolers fine motor skills as they explore the cuddly and wonderful world of the farm.

Me and My Body: If you are looking to talk about the human body with young children (ages 3 to 5) this is the book for you. It doesn’t contain anything graphic or scary for younger little ones and it has lots of great information. A wonderful learning resource.

Learn amazing facts like how germs can make you sick, why you have a belly button, and how your senses work. Then create wonderful crafts, like a beautiful family tree, a homemade stethoscope, and gingerbread skeletons, combining reading skills, STEAM concepts, and hands-on family fun.

Discover what a family tree is, then create one yourself. Explore your amazing fingerprints, then decorate a beautiful picture frame with them. Make a paper skeleton or play a game about digestion. This is a perfect package for a little learner who wants to know all about what’s going on inside their body!

LEGO CITY Busy Word Book: For LEGO lovers of all ages, especially early readers. LEGO City© is the perfect place for early readers to encounter lots of exciting words for the first time. There’s always something happening, whether it’s police officers catching crooks, firefighters training at the fire station, or hotdog vendors cooking up tasty snacks! Interactive activities such as spotting recurring characters and finding hidden objects keep children engaged and encourage repeat reading. Returning time and again to each page, children learn useful and fun words that they can use in daily life.

A great present idea for a little LEGO lover in your life.

How Science Works: The Facts Visually Explained: I would recommend this books for older children who can read and are interested in science. My 7-year-old loves sitting down to read some of the facts and I love how much he has been learning so far. I am sure this book will also get more use as both the boys get older.

How Science Works uses clear, easy-to-understand graphics to answer common questions and explain difficult concepts–not only the core science topics that eluded us at school, but also the cutting-edge science reported in the news.

Have you ever wondered how airplanes stay in the air, how holograms are made, or how ants lift things many times their size? You’ll find answers to these enigmas as well as learn about more complex developments, including the discovery of the Higgs boson, gravitational waves, and the mysteries of dark matter. Topic spreads include Q&A features, short-story sections, and simple graphics to answer all your questions about scientific principles, from familiar conundrums to mysteries that evade even the brightest minds.
