3 Fabulous Fall Books with DK Canada! #Review #Giveaway ~ CAN 11/18

| October 13, 2016 | 51 Comments

For some people, fall is a season full of colour and wonder. For others, it is a time to escape the cool and wet weather it brings by staying indoors. One way to entertain yourself while staying away from the elements is by reading a great book. DK Canada has a large variety of titles for people of all ages to enjoy to make the most of their time indoors. They asked me to review three books that they thought would be fall fabulous for my family.

Below are the titles my family received:




Whether you are on the side of the Rebel Alliance/Resistance or like to fancy yourself on the Dark Side, Star Wars: Year By Year, Updated Edition gives readers a look at the history of the Star Wars universe that fans may not have seen before. This updated version details a distinct timeline of Star Wars history as well as how this universe has shaped our world.




It was so much fun to snuggle up on a couch and flip through this book in pieces. I loved taking in the various aspects that helped to influence this saga. The photos were also gorgeous to look at. It was also interesting to see how this world has made an impact on so many different aspects of our culture, from how we think and speak, to our technology and fashion.

Coming back to Earth, one of the things many of us enjoy doing is travelling. Packing a bag and leaving home is so exciting, but it is also fun to plan out a journey so you can be prepared for the adventure ahead of you. A great way to figure out your game plan on your next excursion is by turning to DK Canada’s Eyewitness Travel – Italy to see which part of this country I should visit.




I was impressed with the layout of this guide book. The book is separated into short trips travellers can make to certain parts of the country as well as more detailed ideas of what tourists can see and do in specific cities. This comes in handy when booking travel and accommodations so you can make every dollar of your adventure count!  

Do you find you are more of a morning person? Are your favourite adventures experienced the kitchen? If you are looking for a way to kick-start your mornings in an ultimate way, Superfood Breakfasts is a great book to use to get you feeling your best!




This book gives readers tips, tricks, and super yummy recipes to create and enjoy. I did not know how many different kinds of meals and treats could be made with superfoods or that they could look so appetizing. It was hard to choose a favourite one to try first since so many of them are a feast for the eyes.

From a galaxy beyond our reach to the heart of a home, these titles from DK Canada has something for everyone to read and enjoy this fall! Packed with details and inspiration, and images that will amaze your eyes, all three of these books will be picked up over and over again by my family. Hopefully, these books will make fall more fabulous for you and your family, too!
