I got a box a little while ago containing four fun Familius Publishing Children’s books. I’ve already been able to review one of them, Little Heroes: Inventors Who Changed the World by Heidi Poelman. But I thought I’d take today and talk a bit about the other three, because they’re tons of fun!
Let’s start with Little Heroes: Courageous People Who Changed the World by Heidi Poelman.
From the intrepid efforts of Susan B. Anthony to the quiet courage of Rosa Parks, Little Heroes: Courageous People Who Changed the World is a young child’s first introduction to the brave people who fought to make the world a better place. Simple text and adorable illustrations tell the contributions of eight champions of freedom: Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony, Malala Yousafzai, Harriet Tubman, William Wilberforce, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. A quote from each individual is included on each spread along with colorful, delightful artwork.
I loved this one! Each of the people depicted in the adorable pictures did so much for their own time and for ours. I love the idea of teaching our little kids that they too can change the world just as these amazing people did. There are so many great people to learn about in our world and these books are a great introduction for anyone, both kids and adults.
Next we have C is for Canada: A Canuck ABC Primer
A is for Artic Char . . .
B is for Beaver . . .
C is for Caribou . . .
With I is for Inuit, H is for Hockey, L is for Loonies, and O is for Ogopogo, going from A to Z has never been more fun. Take an alphabetic field trip through the Great White North and discover plants, animals, and places that make Canada well, unique, eh?
This is my five year old’s favorite. It’s a board book. But there’s just something so much fun about it. We’ve been to Canada a few times in the last couple of years and he just loves it. The illustrations in this one are simple but the Canadian ABC items are random and just fun. I highly recommend this one!
Last but not least is Let’s Count Canada: Numbers and Colours of the True North.
1 Brilliant Blue Viola grows down by the stream
2 Eager Brown Beavers work great as a team
3 Black Canadian Geese fly high in a V
4 White Polar Bears play by the sea
Numbers and colors are more fun in Canada! In this dynamic, colorful primer, young readers count from 1 to 10, learning about colors along the way–as they discover the places, animals, and other wonderful things that make Canada so unique.
Canada is such a unique place. I love the way this book celebrates the uniqueness and teaches kids to count. This one has simple illustrations as well, but they’re just fun. We love everything about this one!
I love that Familius Publishing has such a wide range of children’s books. Make sure to check them out!
