As many of you already know, we have a lot of children's books at home. Because we are believers of importance of knowledge and learning, we try to read to DD as often as possible. At 5 years old, our daughter has become quite the book collector herself.
DD recently added 3 new books to her collection, thanks to CharlesBridge. These books are not only educational, they are also fun to read. The first book DD received to review was the Caterpillars. If you have been reading my blog, you probably recall that we just visited a butterfly house a couple of weeks, so the arrival of this book could not be more perfect. The book is filled with stunningly beautiful images of caterpillars and butterflies. The details on these caterpillars are amazing. I am ashamed to admit that I have never looked at at a caterpillar closely enough to appreciate its beauty. In addition to the wonderful photos your child gets to thumb through, the book details the grow and the changes that occur which allows a caterpillar to transform into a butterfly. I thought this is a great book to not only because it educates your child by providing them with the scientific understanding of a caterpillar's life cycle, the photos also truly captures the beauty of nature.
Animal Tails is a book about the different animals tails and the purposes they serve. From Scaly tails, jumping tails, warning tails to stinging tails, the book features a wide variety of animals with tails. The book is fascinating and also very educational in introducing the different tails as well as explaining how the tails are used. I actually enjoyed reading this book with DD and I have learned a few things myself from the book. For example, did you know that the Whale tails are often used like fingerprints to identify the individual whales? Did you also know that the male kangaroos' tails helped them stay upright when they stand up on their back legs to fight other males? The photos included in this book make it very easy for a child to identify the tails and also to imagine how the tails are used differently for different animals.
Last but not least, "When you Wish Upon a Star," is a beautifully illustrated book full of images that's sure to delight your child. The paintings presented in this children's book are whimsical and truly captures kids' imagination. The lyrics are easy to follow and for a young child to memorized as well. After reading this book, DD loves watching the night sky from her bedroom window in search of a falling star so that she could make a wish upon it. I love that she also wonders if other kids in different parts of the world is also searching for falling stars to wish upon them. This is a wonderful book that depicts the hopes, dreams and endless possibilities in children everywhere.
