4 Books for Family Fun with DK Canada Books
Summer fun can be had in so many different ways. Fun can be an adventure, exploring new features the world is sharing as the season passes along. It can also be through creating items a family can eat or be entertained by. DK Canada asked me to review four books for family fun that can help with learning this summer!
Here are the titles I received to review:
- What Plant Where Encyclopedia
- Smithsonian Super Bug Encyclopedia
- Coding with Scratch Made Easy
The garden can be such a fun place to be during the summer. Putting in new plants, harvesting food and watching all of the flowers bloom is a great way for a family to spend a lot of quality time together. What Plant Where would be great to help make time outdoors fun and educational. Learning tool is divided into gardening in the sun, gardening in the shade and plants for seasonal effects so you can have fun in your garden for most of the year.
What Plant Where also provides readers with a list of plants they can use in their garden at certain times of the year, as well as helping to solve certain gardening issues certain home have.
A garden is a home to more than plants. It hosts a variety of outdoor neighbours of bugs. Smithsonian Super Bug Encyclopedia can teach families all about the insects and bugs that call the outdoors their home.
Super Bug gives readers so much information about all different kinds of bugs, and shares information about them in a fun way. We were surprised at how many different species of bugs existed, and how awesome many of their features are.
Fun can be found in the kitchen as well. Desserts holds 400 recipes that families can bake, taste and enjoy together.
Desserts is divided into hot, cold, and frozen desserts that can be made for any occasion. Its illustrated instructions make it easier to follow to create delicious masterpieces. Desserts gave me so many ideas of what we can bake for my younger daughter’s upcoming birthday, for dinner parties and for holiday gatherings.
Computer learning can also be fun for parents and children to do together. Coding with Scratch Made Easy helps to learn how to use code with the Scratch computer programming system fun.
Coding with Scratch shows users how to begin creating characters through coding, as well as making their characters talk, walk and add music to make a fun production on the computer. I love that this book also aims to build confidence and understanding of coding for kids, and it includes solutions, a glossary, and gold stars to use when a project has been completed! Since I do not currently know how to code, the projects in this book can be something we do together!
My family loved all of the titles we received for summer family fun from DK Canada! These books were able to get our family to enjoy summer from both indoors and out! We were also able to have fun while learning about so many different topics. With all of these books, there are so many opportunities to let the learning continue and to keep the family entertained throughout the summer with ease!
