Something near and dear to my (former travelling self) personality is teaching children about the world we live in. To me, this means studying, learning, and reading about all different types of people; where they live, what they eat, what their families look like, etc. Kane Miller Publishing, the fiction and world cultures part of Usborne Books and More, is quite active in their pursuit of quality literature found all over the world.
Kane Miller Publishing was acquired by Usborne a couple of years ago, and the more I get to know the books, the more I think it is really a wonderful fit. On the back of Kane Miller books there is a spot that tells which country the book is from. This leads me to the next point of the customer specials this month. One of my favorite books--"Around the World" is on sale for $4 this month!
The sticker dolly series has a lot of girly themed books, but this one is by far my favorite. This book is filled with boys and girls from all over the world, a little information about each country shown, and 250 stickers (!) full of clothing to attach and learn about. The great thing about this "Around the World" sticker dolly book is that this is a really unique and fun supplement for a Geography/World Cultures unit, and allows children to learn a little bit about their neighbors around the world, one 2 page spread, and about 20 stickers, at a time. The sticker series are excellent for the older child and long car rides, or for the younger child (3+) engaging with an adult in the activity.
This is just one of the 9 specials for customers in April, as they change monthly. Originally, this book is $8.99 (like all the other sticker dolly series), but on sale for $4, this book is 55% off. The rest of the April customer specials can be accessed here. Did you find something you liked?
