Here in homeschool land we are back to learning about the Ancient Times this year. This week we are covering when Joseph took care of Egypt by preparing for the famine.
And since we were talking Egypt and it's the week of Halloween I surprised the kids with sticker books. They were so thrilled! It's so fun seeing them get excited over books.
It's the Usborne Egyptian Mummies Sticker Book. It is so much fun and packed with stickers and things to do so it provides of quiet play and learning for kids. How amazing does that sound?
As you know I am an Usborne Books Consultant and so I just think these books are so amazing. The biggest feature I love about Usborne is my patented saying that they are "sneakily educational". And that is so true with these books too. The Usborne website explains how this was written with an Egyptologist. so all of the facts that you are reading are accurate and not just bland facts that every book has. That is the coolest thing!
So I started our morning out with a spooky halloween breakfast of warm apple cider, cocoa puffs, and a marshmallow peep (because it's Halloweeny time!). Then while they noshed and worked on their sticker books I read to them the chapter from our history book. And seriously this would be one of my biggest learning tips, especially if you have boys: when you're reading to them let them do something with their hands Anything. Stickers, playdough, legos, blocks. Their brains absorb so much more when their hands or bodies are moving, it's incredible.
Anyway, because I love this book I've deciced to give one of them away to one lucky reader! The sheer fact that there are over 650 stickers in this puppy is just mind blowing! There are lots of ways to enter into the drawing and the drawing will go all through the spooky Mummy filled weekend. I know we're all super busy this weekend with our littles so this will give you plenty of time to get those entries in.
If you would like to purchase this book (or others) in the event of not winning be sure to check out my website here! I'd love to see you get good books for your kiddos that they will love! Good luck and I hope all of you mummies and deadies have a wonderful weekend trick-or-treating!
