Amanda’s got the UAE covered today, and now I’m up for the US! Several of the books Amanda covered are also deals in the US, and she also gives great instructions on how to find the book deals, so be sure to check out her post HERE!
You Are (Not) Small boxed set
My mom gave thee books to my son for his birthday last year (she gives all the grandkids books for their birthdays each year and it’s always exciting to wait and find out which awesome one she chooses!), so I will admit that I am extra fond of them because of that. Those warm fuzzy memories aside, however, I do love these books. Two fuzzy friends navigate some of life’s issues that all kids are going to encounter, but are extra adorable about it! Bonus, the text is simple enough for my just-learned-how-to-read six-year-old to read to me!
The Tale of Despereaux: Being the Story of a Mouse, a Princess, Some Soup, and a Spool of Thread
This is one of those great books for kids who are ready to read books a step up from pictures books, but still love the illustrations. Any kid who loves adventure will love this tale of a tiny mouse with larger ears and more bravery than any mouse you’ve ever seen. If anyone has read more of Kate DiCamillo’s books, you probably already love them and will be excited to snap this one up on Prime Day! I had the privilege of hearing her speak at the US’s National Book Festival (https://www.loc.gov/events/2019-national-book-festival/about-this-event/) last year and she is just delightful (as are her books)!
This is another gift someone gave my son (this time his preschool teacher) that they knocked out of the park. Bruce the bear, adopted parent of a trio of geese, returns home from vacation (being a good goose parent, he “flew” south for the winter with them), to discover his cozy bear home has been turned into a hotel in their absence! As far as I can tell, the original book about this unusual family, Mother Bruce is not a Prime Deal, but Hotel Bruce is delightful even with never having read the first one!
Highlight’s Write-On Wipe Off Letters
I am not planning on buying much this Prime Day, but I might be reeled in by this one. Reading and writing go hand-in-hand and I have a gaggle of kiddos who are just about at that learning to read and write stage (as well as a gaggle of road trips coming up that they need entertainment for)! If you, too, have a kiddo who needs some non-screen-time entertainment in these last weeks of summer (here in the northern hemisphere, anyway), join me in trying this one out!
As Amanda said, Prime Day Deals start all throughout the day, so be sure and take note of when your deals are on. Happy book shopping, everyone!
