Are you spending time lining up your curricula for the next school year like I am?  I know I am tweakingTime_traveler
my curricula to involve and include as many of my children in  our studies as possible….from the 2 year-old up to the 13 year-olds! Among other things, I am using Usborne to do this.  As one reviewer said:

"With the right educational resources, you can turn a good lesson into a great one!Math_illus
Here’s a
look at products that can help. They’re arranged by category: cross-curricular, arts and
crafts, language arts, math, science, social studies, and professional. Take a look!"

I am holding a Tweaking the Curricula Party right here for the next 10 days.  If youSci_encyclopedia
follow this special  link and place an Usborne Books order, I will place your name in a hat for a free book drawing (value $20.00).

For every book you order, I will place your name in a hat for the drawing. 
In
addition, the person who places the largest order will win free
shipping!

What are you studying?… World War I, World War II, Inventions, Geography, or Knights, Castles,First_ww
Romans, Greeks, Ancient History… 

What are you covering in Science?  Experiments, Dinosaurs, Microscopes, NatureSticker_atlas_of_the_world

How about The ArtsMusicShakespeare

Are you looking for colorful high-quality flashcards, games or seasonal fun?

How about lapbook enhancements, field guides, sticker books (NOT just for the little ones…these are beautiful BOOKS!) Microscope

Do you need a book that will give the little ones a taste of what the older ones are doing?  Usborne has a knack of gifting each child with information that is actually retained at their level  Many of these books are internet linked which means children have the
opportunity to challenge their knowledge, and make connections stick.. 

"Usborne Books are designed graphically to draw the
students in, to make them wantAncient_world
to learn the material and
to help them retain that knowledge.

 The magic of Usborne Books is that they make both
reading and learning fun and not a boring or
intimidating experience. Peter Usborne set out to break
down a child’s resistance to reading and learning at
home. These books are so well organized that children
absorb and recall much of the vast amount of information
presented."
Randall White

Having an Usborne book available for exploration on any topic is sure to peak the interest of your youngSci_exper
students.  I know my boys love this…I especially love the "fast talk" they have when trying to explain with enthusiasm what they are learning.  They feel like they OWN the information and speak to me as though I am the student and they are the teachers.

Did you know that many of the homeschool curricula providers do recommend Usborne books …includingStory_of_painting
my favorite…RC History!  There are several new titles just out that you might just fall in love with…including our new World War I book and the Story of Painting

Please prayerfully consider ordering Usborne from a consultant (like me) instead of Amazon this year.  Please support home-based businesses.  Usborne offers the highest quality materials (quality acid-free paper and strong bindings) from their home consultant line.  When you order directly from Usborne, you receive quality workmanship and service! BTW… If you are interested in hosting your own on-line Usborne books party, you can earn free books very simply and easily!
