Blue Apple Books “Summer” Giveaway
(Two Winners, Two Books)
Warmer temps mean that it’s FINALLY time to get back outside again and two high-concept books from Blue Apple Books (www.blueapplebooks.com) are the perfect way to learn more about the great outdoors.
How Things Work in the Yard describes the inner workings of just about everything that’s right outside a youngster’s back door — including acorns, bubbles, puddles, ants, fireflies, clouds, birds and even dandelions (did you know they close at night and then open again in the sun?). Just right for kids ages 4-8, creator Lisa Campbell Ernst deftly strikes the right balance of detailed yet easy-to-understand language and cleverly labeled drawings to inventively explain the functioning of objects that may seem quite ordinary to us grown ups but rather extraordinary to our children!
Bugs by the Numbers features an amazing array of insects: butterflies to termites, dragonflies to walking sticks. What makes this book a true stand-out is that these incredible insects are ingeniously engineered out of numerals. Each entry also includes fascinating numeric facts about its subject — like how a flea can bite up to 400 times per day or that a queen termite can lay 1 egg every 15 seconds! This eye-catching and imaginative book for kiddos ages 6-12 features 9 die-cut gatefolds and text that is fun, funny and informative!
I received a copy of both of these books as well (upcoming review), and my boys loved them both. My daughter enjoyed the bright pictures, but the boys really were interested, asked a ton of questions and have even taken the books outside to apply what they’ve learned! These high quality books are a must have for summer and this week TWO winners will each receive a set!
