I recently became a consultant for Usborne Books and More, award-winning children’s fiction and nonfiction, because I love their books so much. I figured I should work for discounts while I’m in the process of buying and sharing all that I love!
One of the first books that I ordered (this in my business start-up kit) was Secrets of the Apple Tree by Carron Brown and Alyssa Nasser. Secrets explore the various habitats for animals around an apple tree, from the birds in the nest and the worms in the ground, to the squirrels in the hollow space and the fungi growing on a fallen branch. As an educational book, it provides plenty of fodder for learning and exploring the habitats.
But the content is only the first fun thing about the book. As a part of the “Shine-A-Light” series, Secrets of the Apple Tree provides an interactive hands-on guessing game for the young reader as well.
Raisin decided to share his thoughts about this book too. He loved having to use a flashlight to read the book. Hear what he has to say!
Have you seen this type of book before? Kane Miller also publishes Secrets of the Seashore, Secrets of the Rain Forest, and the newest, On the Train. I’m excited to try them all!
