Making Learning Easy With Great Books

The other night at bedtime, my 5-year-old son and I were nestled in his bed as usual reading books. But this time I found myself rambling on about plate tectonics, the titanic, deserts in Africa where there once was arable land, and answering such questions as what one can do to combat the horrors of rain forest deforestation.

All this from one colorful and beautifully illustrated page in a kids world atlas. One page.

Not usual bedtime conversation for us, but this kids' world atlas we recently got from Barefoot Books has really made it easy for both of us to connect and be engaged with our mutual love of maps and geography.

And don't even get me started about the corresponding World Atlas app for iPads. Oh my.

There is just something to be said about a good quality book, and one with great kid-friendly (but not cheesy) illustrations and made in a way that draws you in. This book nails it.

By the way, did you know I am a Barefoot Books Ambassador now? I just love these books and wanted to share them with families in my community. Check out my site here. Order online through my site and you can use coupon code TWENTY13 to get 20% off your first online order.
