I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hands-on-Prints books.
I received books to facilitate my review. #HandsOnPrints
I am looking forward to a school break – I am so tired of the schedules, fundraisers, organized activities. And how am I celebrating the beginning of summer? I am getting my kids books! With all the craziness that summer brings, I know it will be hard for the kiddos to stop and just chill. However, when they do, I want them tot read something great and with the help of Hands-on-Prints we have choices!
This series of five books is dedicated to learning about the world through vibrant visual experience. I am not sure if I have ever held books these gorgeous! The books of this series inspire simple and complex learning about the world, incorporating tactile elements and vibrant, interactive visual experience for children.
A Perfect Book for My “Know it All” Daughter
Geometry through Architecture. My girl wants to know everything and I think this book would be a great introduction for her into architecture as the book talks about Medieval French Roman Catholics Chartres Cathedral. Beautifully spiral bound this book screams to be a gift!
I always found Geometry boring, but it might of had something to do with the way I was learning it – lines, angles, rules, and rulers. However, this book brings the life into geometry: behind circles and squares, there lies symbolism. One of the sections of the book explains the geometrical relation of the cathedral elements and how the builders read it to create this monumental building. Think about how perfectly symmetrical are the parts of the Cathedral – it was constructed between 1194 and 1250 and is located about 50 mi southwest of Paris.
Do you know that the windows of the Cathedral are more than just pictures? Here the book tells the story – the direction and symbolism of the historical events are in the cathedral windows for us to read and understand.
It is truly incredible and mind blowing how an architecture can teach us geometry, as well as history and literature. This book would be a great gift for a kid, who loves non-fiction and wants to learn more about engineering.
A Perfect Book Match for My Son
My son is getting a book that perfectly describes his personality. I have to say, this book was probably written with my son in mind
Do I have to? What if I don’t want to will address problems some of the youngest kids might have to deal with every day – Why do I have to do this?
If you have a child who is quite expressive, but can’t quite express himself, this is the book you need to look into. My son had a speech delay for a while and in a combination with Sensory Processing Disorder, it was A MESS! He couldn’t understand that he was a hungry when he was hungry – all he felt was confusion and anger and the only way he could express by crying and screaming.
This book is also a great handout for moody kids and their parents. It even comes with an instruction on how to use it. It actually looks pretty close to the cards I got from my son’s teacher to aid him express himself before his speech caught up with his development. The book does a few things – teaches a child to understand his emotions and helps him deal with it. Imagine your child being mad, because he has to go to sleep. Solution? While reading this book lets him associate his emotion with an emotion in the book, helps him understand how he feels about it, and also allows him to express himself, by following one of the suggested directions.
– Look, the boy is crying, because he doesn’t want to go to bed – he wants to play with his toys. Do you ever feel like that? Does it make you want to roar like a line or buzz like a bee?
You might have a hissing snake or whimpering puppy, but it will redirect your child’s attention from his overpowering emotion to imaginary play will help you transition to the next stage of your day. Believe it or not, this really does work – this how much son and I started to communicate and understand each other before he could express himself.
