Did you know that when a parent stops reading to or with their children, the child’s interest in reading drops drastically?   Spending time reading with your children, is not only great bonding time, but it also makes our children better readers and they perform better on tests! “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body” Richard Steele

So this is Why Reading Matters New Kids Book Recommendations by our contributor, Jen.

Why Read Usborne Books New Year New Releases

Why Read?

Having lots of  books available is a great way to assure there is always something entertaining to read.  January is a great time to stock up those bookshelves and make sure you have plenty of choices available for the long winter months!

Usborne Books & More is dedicated to making sure every family has access to amazing, interactive books in their home.  80% of our books are priced under $10!   You also have the opportunity to host parties and earn free books.   My family has so many favorites from fun activity and sticker books, to beautiful story books,   Our books are colorful and engaging!   I love how diverse they are, assuring that all children can find themselves in a book.   This all stems from Founder Peter Usborne’s philosophy:   “Children are clever – they are our equals.  We shouldn’t talk down them, but look across at them.   Books should be friendly, and as much like magnets as possible.   They should be reliable and accurate, and also surprising and provocative.   Books should help you get off your couch so you’re not just sitting there watching TV and chewing gum.  They should promote wondering.  They should be better than good.”
One of our family favorites is the Nibbles series:   https://f10380.myubam.com/p/5684/nibbles-the-book-monster   These books are so fun and engaging for all ages!   My 9 year old loves that there are books inside of the book.  You can see what happens in other stories as Nibbles nibbles his way through them, leaving some fun cutouts.   He also thinks it’s super cool that we have a plush Nibbles to read along with.
Our books ARE  better than good!    If you don’t have our books on your shelves, there is no better time than right now!  In January, we are offering double rewards on qualifying parties.  Join our New Titles party this Sunday evening in the group for a chance to win some free books:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/770099817149500 !
Happy New Year!    ~ Jen Plona, Mother of Three and Reading Consultant
