Usborne Books! and the T.G.I.F. linky party!
Usborne Books is a world leader in children's educational products. They produce top quality materials in a variety of topics and interests and can cater to every age and stage of childhood.

International best sellers as well as titles that link to on-line sites for more research info.
Here's a bit of info from the company themselves...
"We spent considerable time analyzing the vision for this company and what its purpose is.  Yes, we sell the very best children's books in the world, but we feel we have a higher purpose.  We feel we are part of the overall education and literacy movement in the nation, and we feel our products can make a difference in the lives of children.  Our Mission Statement clearly defines the vision of our company

Books are such a great thing to have in your child's life, better than any toy you will ever purchase.  Did you know that it's a proven fact, the more books you have available for your children to read in your home, the better they will perform on standardized tests as well as through out their school career!

I really would like to get the "Big and Little Box Set" for my daughter. Then as I was scrolling up I saw the book "Baby's Very First Little Book of Little Puppies." Everyday when we go for our walk we see a lot of dogs and my daughter just LOVES them. This would have to be my first seletion. She would LOVE it!!

I can't pass up books! If I were to win I don't think $20 wouldn't be enough- there's simply too many great books.

However, here are some of my favorites: The Secret Garden- picture book (This is my son's favorite book), Stories from Around the World (sounds like a good addition for a classroom), The Wicket Chronicles Book 1 (this looks like a fun series), and the Animal Facts Flashcards...I could keep going, but I have hit the $20 limit.

And I am a follower.

Thanks for all of your fun ideas. I am totally jealous of your creativity! Do you stay up all night dreaming up these things or does it just come to you naturally? :)

We love Usborne books I would probably get either "That's Not My Monkey" for my new little guy. Or go for "The Christmas Jigsaw Book" because my older kids have loved them!

Thanks for the chance to win!

The Usborne books are great! We homeschool and use many of them in science and history. They have great illustrations and information. If I won, I would probably choose a fun book like "50 things to draw and paint" or "1001 Pirate Things to find".

Thanks for the fun givaway!
