Kid Konnection: Fun & Educational Books

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you two books that are both fun and educational!

Summary: Get them talking this Easter with this educational and fun book for their basket that explores essential words with colorful pictures.

Cleverly designed in a large trim size to inform and entertain, this board book is the start of your baby's learning adventure and introduces them to primary concepts like colors, animals, food, and so much more.

Crystal-clear photos show the wonder of the real world, from baby's body to baby's food, while delightful illustrations foster learning, from penguins playing in the snow to a mouse climbing a ladder. Clear word labels encourage pointing, naming, and talking, aiding in early identification and language skills.

With its sturdy board book format and 14 themed pages covering all the familiar things little ones are interested in, 100 First Words is the perfect first book for parents and babies to share. -- DK Publishing

I absolutely loved DK books! They always seem to make learning fun and 100 FIRST WORDS is no exception. 100 FIRST WORDS is an oversized picture book that teaches little ones about colors, their body, food, animals, and more. Each page spread features two different concepts with adorable illustrations and photographs. There are only a few words per page so it's ideal for the youngest of readers.
As you can see from the page spread pictured above, this book is positively adorable... and educational. 100 FIRST WORDS is exactly the type of book that both of my kids adored. It has lots of fun images to explore, and parents will appreciate the sturdy board pages. 100 FIRST WORDS is definitely durable, and that's important because I have a feeling that kiddos will want to look at this book over and over again.

100 FIRST WORDS is priced below $10 and would make a great addition to Easter baskets! Highly recommended!

Summary: Discover the world's smallest adventures with this beautifully illustrated journey around the world from the award-winning team behind Atlas of Adventures.

Explore seven continent maps and learn about the best small-scale adventures on Earth – whether you’ re taking a ride on the world's largest miniature railway, sending a letter with the world's smallest post office or cruising coral reefs with the smallest seahorse, this book brings together best miniature adventures from the four corners of the globe. -- Wide Eyed Editions

You might remember a few months ago that I reviewed a very cool (and very big) book called ATLAS OF ANIMAL ADVENTURES. Well, now I'm going to share with you a companion book called ATLAS OF MINIATURE ADVENTURES: A POCKET-SIZED COLLECTION OF SMALL-SCALE WONDERS by Lucy Letherland and written by Emily Hawkins. This small 64 page book takes readers around the world and shows them some of the smallest adventures.

ATLAS OF MINIATURE ADVENTURES is so cute because of its compact size, but it also has loads of interesting information... about "mini marvels." While there are many books that celebrate the big adventures in life, this book showcases some of life's "little wonders" including tiny animals to miniature model villages, and even small toys.

ATLAS OF MINIATURE ADVENTURES takes readers on a tour of the world by visiting different continents and different countries. For example while in Africa, readers learn about the world's smallest primate; and while in North America, kids can discover one of the world's largest model railways which resides in Flemington, New Jersey.

I think ATLAS OF MINIATURE ADVENTURES has a little something for everyone (see how I did that?) The book explores topics from a variety of fields including animals, buildings, and tourist spots. There is even an adorable dollhouse featured that has teeny tiny silver cutlery, works of art, and diamond-encrusted chandeliers.

ATLAS OF MINIATURE ADVENTURES is a very cute book that's really unlike any other children's  book I've seen. Highly recommended!

Thanks to the publishers for providing a review copies of these books.

I think having a Kid Konnection blog is truly a great idea.
