My children and I love the springtime and you can often find us enjoying time outdoors as a family this time of the year. We love to read outside when the weather is beautiful and we recently enjoyed two new wonderful children’s picture books from Craigmore Creations. These are two books that are sure to inspire young children to get outside and let their imaginations soar!
Flowers By Nature (SRP $14.99/hardcover) by author David Shapiro is a picture book for “Little Naturalists” that elevates the average number/counting book to beautiful new levels with interesting text and beautiful wildflower illustrations by Hayley Vair. My five and six year old children enjoyed reading and counting along to ten as they discovered some pretty new flowers. They also learned about the parts of a flower while counting stems, stamens and petals. After reading this delightful book my three children were inspired to head out to our back field to explore for wildflowers which they brought back to create their own wildflower book. I love when a book can actually encourage and inspire my children’s creativity!
Tool. Time. Twist.-A Brief History of Tools Through Time by David Shapiro is a wonderful way to explore history as readers will go back through time to 2.5 million years ago and learn about tools such as sticks and stones, the hand ax and fire. Leading up to modern times, my children loved learning about new tools that they had never thought about using to the tools that they see their dad using all the time. The fun, interesting illustrations by Christopher Herndon really captures the essence of the text and this book was a hit with my sons and even my six year old daughter. We loved this book as an introduction to technology and history and it is available for purchase in hardcover edition for the SRP of $17.99.
Craigmore Creations has a wonderful selection of children’s books that celebrate the beauty and the history of the world around us. These two book titles are excellent ideas for spring reading and would make great gift ideas for young readers. You are invited to visit the Craigmore Creations website to browse all of the available titles and choose your favorites.
One lucky reader will receive a wonderful prize pack including Flowers By Nature, Tool. Twist. Time, a 3-piece children’s tool set and a packet of wildflower seeds!
