| March 9, 2016 | 51 Comments

I LOVE books. Whether it is fiction or non-fiction, they always open a door to different world of learning and exploration that I find fascinating. When looking for titles that offer instruction or information, I love looking through the boutiques that DK Canada has to offer. There are so many of them, with books that everyone in the family would enjoy. I was asked to review three books from a few of their book boutiques. I chose the following titles to review:

• Baby Play for Every Day
• Pocket Genius: Bugs
• Wine: A Tasting Course

One of my best friends is in a new phase of her life: motherhood. This is her first time being around a new baby for many hours at a time and caring for it on her own. I felt that Baby Play for Every Day would be a perfect book for new moms who want to keep their new bundle entertained and learning for their first year of life. There are so many activities new parents can do with their babies so they can have fun while teaching their baby about the world around them. From exercises and crafts to songs and outing ideas, Baby Play for Every Day is a fantastic book to make a baby’s first year an engaging one.

With the weather about to change, my kids can’t wait to see spring again. We are always seeing different kinds of bugs in our backyard, but are not always sure as to what all of our outdoor neighbours look like. That is why I loved Pocket Genius: Bugs. It is a small but information-packed guide to the world of creepy-crawlies that inhabit our world. I learned a lot about the numerous different kinds of bugs that live not only in my backyard, but around the world, the difference between two bugs that look-alike and how they all fit into our world.

Over the past few years, learning about the wide world of wine has become a new interest of mine. There have been times when I felt a bit lost in the aisles of the wine store searching for a new wine to taste or for the perfect wine to share with friends and family. This is where Wine: A Tasting Course came to the rescue! It teaches readers what they should keep their eyes out for when picking a good wine, the differences between particular wines, why different wine glasses are necessary and which wines go best with different foods. I did not know there was so much to know about wine and my mind loved uncorking all of the information this book gave me.
