NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 14 {giveaway is closed}

Secrets of Winter: A Shine-a-Light Book 
by Carron Brown. Summer 2015.

From Usborne: "Who is out and about during wintertime? Shine a light behind the pages and discover a natural winter world full of surprises!"

My thoughts: My kids love Usborne's shine-a-light books. Whether they use a flashlight or just hold it up to the light or window, they have so much fun seeing what the hidden picture is on each page. As winter approaches here in the northern hemisphere, this book is educational yet fun, as it reveals things like frogs, hares, bears, and more.

Recommended Age: 4-8 years (my 3-year-old has also loved shine-a-light books since she was 2!)

  11. I love the Christmas Magic Painting Book. My 3-year-old grandaughter would love watching the colors come to life. She's also fascinated with anything about animals and the natural world, so the shine a light book would be an instant hit!
