Back To School Education And Fun With DK Publishing #Review

I was given the opportunity to review a couple DK items with my daughter and we are so happy with the books that we received!


My Encyclopedia of Very Important Things‘ is a fun, entertaining way to learn all about anything a little reader could possibly want to know.


Learning takes on a storybook feel, being told through “Once upon a time” stories and graphic novel elements. The padded cover (front and back) and ribbon bookmark make it the perfect book for young readers’ hands.  My Encyclopedia of Very Important Things explores the whole big wide world including animals, people, planets, and of course, you!  You can learn about what happens when you skin your knee and what makes family members family.  Explore the past with cavemen, vikings, and pharaohs.  Learn how plants go from seed to flour, and see what clouds are made up of.  You and your little one will have fun learning all about these things and going out and exploring.

Sometimes, girls just want to have fun.  What better way to have fun than with a Monster High Ultimate Sticker Collection?


This Monster High Ultimate Sticker Collection is packed with cool images of the friends who attend Monster High. Meet the students and learn all about them, their best ghoulfriends, teachers, and pets.  This collection  combines creeperific captions with over 1,000 stickers and activities for fans to sink their teeth into.  This book lets readers discover lots of fun facts about their favorite Monster High characters while placing the themed, reusable stickers on colorful backgrounds. To add to the fun, kids can use the extra stickers on lockers, binders, or just about anywhere!

My daughter will be 5 next month and we’ve been working together on some things at home since she misses the birthday deadline for kindergarten.  You may think this book looks like just stickers and fun, but I see it as a great way to teach my daughter matching shapes and helping her build fine motor skills like hand-eye coordination.  Thanks to the shadowed spaces where you place the stickers my daughter has gotten really good at shape matching.  She’s also built a great deal of hand control making those stickers go on just perfect.

These are just a couple of the great books that DK Publishing offers…make sure you check them out this Back To School Season to find the perfect books to help enhance your child’s learning.
