Hardcover, 12 pages, Kane Miller Books

Juvenile Nonfiction / Science & Nature / Earth Sciences
Ages 5 And Up

These are both pop-up books. What’s Below? also has a pop-down effect. Both have text but my little guy was all chatter, chatter about what he saw, so the text I only read to myself. Each and every page he stated, “wow”. There are five scenes in each book. Both books are recommended 🙂

Hardcover, 44 pages, January 2018, Compendium

The award–winning creators of The New York Times best sellers What Do You Do With an Idea? and What Do You Do With a Problem? return with a captivating story about a child who isn’t sure what to make of a chance encounter and then discovers that when you have courage, take chances, and say yes to new experiences, amazing things can happen.

Amazon recommends this book for grades kindergarten -3 but the book and it’s message definitely goes beyond grade 3. I loved the first two books. (Idea and Problem) for their amazing text and illustration. This picture book is very similar and I wished it was somewhat different. Still, a great insightful book. Positive thinking !

I appreciate the positive influence that Compendium products give.

Everyone loves ‘Bingo the Puppy’™. Unleash this playful pup and watch him bounce, tumble & roll over! Then match his ‘spots’ to a space on your game board and place a chip there. Be the first player with three chips in a row and you win!

Bingo The Puppy Board Game

It is a fun game to play with a 3 year old. Easy to understand rules as you can read from the description of the game above. As with the previous Jax games I reviewed, everything is quality made to last for many enjoyable game times. Visit Jax Games to see this and other terrific games ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ

Hardcover, 32 page, picture book for ages 2-6, concepts/activities/ art/ animals.

“Guess which animal will appear next based on a tiny hint in the right-hand corner of each double-page spread. Then discover who’s left the page.”

LOVE it. My 2 year old reviewer and I think this is a fun book full of animals. Also good for reasoning and observational skills.

Paperback activity book, 96 pages.

“Math and art, as different as night and day, right? Wrong! This is Not a Math Book shows how math can be beautiful and art can be numerical. Amazing patterns with a mathematical basis will be revealed as you follow the simple activity instructions. And you’ll learn incredible math facts as you draw the beautiful designs. A real eye-opener for kids of all ages with an artistic bent who think that math is dry and boring, while math enthusiasts will discover new ways to be creative.”

LOVE it. For ages 9 and up, so I’ve reviewed this one solo. I’m enjoying this doodle-like book at nap times and I will have to buy another when needed for my youngster. Great home school resource.

Amazing Action Alphabet Flip ChartThe Amazing Action Alphabet is so successful because it takes the abstract alphabet-with its shapes, names, and sounds-and presents it to the learner in terms based on knowledge that most children already have and understand.

About the Amazing Action Alphabet

The Amazing Alphabet Flip Chart was reviewed by me with my 2 year old boy. It’s sized 6 x 9, spiral-bound, with card stock pages printed on both sides. From the See Hear Do Company, I love this approach. For each letter of the alphabet, there is an animal that creates the shape of the letter (see). There is also a story for that letter (hear) and an action activity to include with the story (do). Excellent resource for families.

Other products available in addition to this flip chart so I recommend visiting their web site.
