DK books

Growing up I remember having a huge home library. Our library was in our living room and occupied a large wall from floor to ceiling . My parents loved books and we had books on almost everything; we had a selection of encyclopedias, health books, geography books, novels, biographies, children’s book, etc. I have always loved books as well and I would love to build a kid’s library filled with encyclopedias and a variety of books for our boys to have at home.

Enter DK Canada books. We are big fans of their books and I love their large selection of educational and entertaining books for children. Last month we received a selection of books for the boys to read for our last weeks of the summer break and in preparation for back to school. See info on all the titles we received below:

Meant for children aged 5 and up, My First Encyclopedia will pique kids’ curiosity and stimulate their intellectual development. Stunning photographs, facts, games, and puzzles will capture children’s attention and make reading fun. Clear and comprehensive content helps develop educational skills and broaden a child’s knowledge. Additionally, helpful parents’ notes are included to encourage an interactive learning experience between caregiver and child. With My First Encyclopedia, children will build knowledge and vocabulary that will stimulate their mind and aid their development.

Both boys love reading this encyclopedia. Filled with beautiful and bright images and lots of easy to understand information this one is a must have in your home library.

Children’s Illustrated Atlas

Bring geography to life and explore the countries of the world like never before with DK’s Children’s Illustrated Atlas. Featuring approximately 50 unique maps of the world that show each country in full-color detail, this new atlas is bursting with information, combining colorful icons with photographs representing key points about each country. Young adventurers ages 8-12 will start by learning the fundamentals of reading a map by using a key, compass, and scale, and will progress to discovering fascinating trivia about all the countries of the world, from the United States to Ukraine and Turkey to Taiwan. Bite-size facts and figures that cover a variety of topics such as climates, population, mountains.

I absolutely love this Atlas. Such a great way to show the world to the boys. Very unique and fun. The boys also love the big world map that comes with the book. Our eldest was asking about Punta Cana in the map as we just returned from a trip there. So cool for him to see it all in the map.
