DK Canada Books Spring Break Picks {Giveaway}

Spring Break is here and the boys are really enjoying their two weeks off school and all their extra free time.

We recently received a shipment from DK Canada with some great new books from their “findout!” line and it has been perfect for them to go through the new books right now. Below are our book picks this month.

DK Canada Books Spring Break Picks {Giveaway}

DKfindout! Universe

Children will find out about the universe, our solar system, observations of the starry skies, and the mind-blowing wonders of outer space.

From the birth of stars to the mysteries of black holes, the Universe has been constantly studied to understand how it works. Learn about icy planets and explosive stars, far-off galaxies that powerful telescopes looking deep into space have captured, observatories and astronomy, and whole new worlds discovered by space-exploring probes in this beautifully illustrated children’s book that is crammed with amazing facts about the universe.

Our thoughts: So perfect to introduce children to the universe, the planets and more. Lots of amazing pictures, fun facts and more!

DKfindout! Solar System

Take a trip across Mars, find out what the weather is like on Jupiter, and visit the International Space Station. See how the planets move, learn about the asteroid belt, and read up on the history of astronomy. Discover once and for all why Pluto is a dwarf planet.

Our thoughts:  If your little ones are interested in learning about the solar system this is the book for them. Lots of facts again and tons of pictures. Great book to help them memorize the planet names. 

DKfindout! Robots

Celebrating STEAM, robotics, innovation, and supercool technology, explore kid inventors, robots with feelings, robotic toys and games, cyborgs, and more in this fact-packed book.

Find out how and why robots are made, how they help humans now, and how they will help us in the future. Discover how computers develop and build robots, and how engineers design robots with very specific capabilities, be it walking, jumping, exploring Mars, or defusing explosives. Written by an expert in the field, this book is a great addition to any home library, school’s robotics club book list, and classroom’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) library.

Our thoughts: Introduce little ones to the world of robots and robotics with this fun book. Our 5-year-old loved flipping through the pages and seeing all the images, and our eight-year-old enjoyed reading the facts and cool information.

DKfindout! Science

Learn the differences between atoms, molecules, mixtures, and compounds; find out how plants work, and see the water cycle in action. Sure to inspire the next amazing science fair project, DK findout! Science breaks down what science is and how it works.

Find out what makes up matter, how the food chain is stacked, and how the weather works. Read about electricity and magnetism to discover how they affect our daily lives. Follow up with your own experiments, including how to make a rainbow!

Our thoughts: This book is filled with lots of amazing science facts! Interesting info and experiments that kids love.
