Let your kids loose in reading with DK Readers


DK Canada has an amazing deal to encourage your kids to read this summer.  If you buy two DK Readers from their boutique, you will get a third one free.  We have had the privilege to review and read numerous of their DK Readers in the past and I am always amazed at the quality of some of their books.

Before I present you some of the titles we received to promote this special deal at the DK Readers Boutique – buy 2 get 1 FREE, let me show you what is the DK Readers.   Essentially, it is a multi-level reading program that will allow your child to progress based on his/her comfort of reading the words.   The program starts with simple sentences and slowly builds up with more complicated stories and vocabulary.   You can find numerous titles in the series whether you are looking for a Canadian subject or something based on Star Wars.   There are something for everyone in the DK Readers.   Below is a more comprehensive guide to allow you to determine which reader would be better for your child.


9780756616960HThis specific one is obviously for my dancing ballerina – she always borrow books from the library on dancing…  In I want to be a Ballerina Jasmine is following Jaimie at her first ballet class.  The book highlights the various things you need to know to dance ballet and includes numerous photos as well.   Jasmine loves to pick up this book and look at the pictures when she doesn’t have someone to read the book to her.

As I was checking out the titles, I stumbled on two special ones based on the popular game Angry Birds Star Wars.  Knowing how my kids would love to read these, I just couldn’t resist and requested them to review.   My assumption was okay and as soon as the books arrived they jumped on these two titles to devour them with their eyes.   Lard Vader’s Villains  will introduce your kids to the evil Lard Vader and his Empire pigs.  The book will allow your child to follow them as they try to take control of the galaxy…   In Yoda Bird’s Heroes, the kids will meet Yoda Bird and the Rebel Heroes as they try to defeat the Empire pigs.

Finally, the last DK Readers book I selected was Skate! which follows the progress of a beginning skateboarder as he advances from basic moves to more exciting tricks and jumps. 9780756638290H   I know my boys will enjoy reading about how to skateboard and discover some tricks at the same time.

9780756652074HFinally, I also want to highlight the fabulous DK Biography books that are based solemnly on one particular person in history.    I received the one on Thomas Edison but I had read other ones in the past – Gandhi, Harriet Tubman, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Mother Teresa.    The DK Biographies books are filled wit  archival photographs and amazing facts which help to introduce the readers to some of history's most interesting and influential characters.  DK Biography: Thomas Edison tells the story of the famous inventor, from his childhood as an "addled" student, to his reign as the "Wizard of Menlo Park," where he developed the electric light bulb, the phonograph, and many other inventions still in use today.  I always enjoy the books from this specific series as I am discovering fascinating facts about a specific person in history.
