Ahh… reading. It is one of the great joys in life. Seriously, whether for pleasure or education or both, reading is a fantastic skill that allows you to do so many things. My kids love reading. I have a 10 year old daughter and and an 8 year old son and they can both be found reading in their spare time. People ask me all the time what I did to make my kids love reading and I tell them, that I read to them and I have them read to me. Before my kids could talk, I read them board books pointing at the pictures and saying the words or longer books with fun rhymes. When they were old enough, we took turns each reading a page. They understood that reading is something fun we do together. The best way to start a child out with a love of books is to have books available to them. That is why I am so excited to bring you this amazing young reader books giveaway that is sponsored by Kingfisher Children’s Books.

This book series is all about adventures with animals in exotic settings. Your kids will love learning about unusual animals like giant armadillo, stinky skunks, and awesome angler fish. Animal enthusiast are sure to enjoy reading these books over and over as they encounter wild animals in their natural habitats! My daughter read “Rainforest Adventure” before school this morning.
She enjoyed the fun rhyming-
“The tapir is a mammal. It’s hoofed and rather stout. It sniffs for tasty plant life with its clever, stretchy snout.”
I love that it uses words that will expand your child’s vocabulary.
She also loved the last page which engaged her even more and and sent her rummaging back through all the pages to find each animal!
