Discovering new books is like opening a present or a box (!) and this month there are 22 exciting new books by Usborne to discover. What joy. We have picked four of our favourite new books to share with you.

New books : Fingerprint activities

Who doesn’t like making fingerprints? My children love this fun activity book for 5 years upwards. It’s a colourful delight, filled with pictures that will really appeal to all children. Even the older ones will enjoy creating more freestyle sophisticated patterns and images with their fingerprints.

The book comes with its own inkpad of six bright colours and lots of fun ideas. There’s no need for a brush or paint pot and the inks are non-toxic and washable.

New books: Things to spot in London sticker book

Anything planned for the Spring break? If you are taking the kids to London, don’t forget to take this fabulous sticker book with you, for 6 years upwards.

This handy pocket-sized sticker book, which includes fifty well-known landmarks, will keep the children occupied when you are trekking from tube station to tube station. The idea is to add stickers after spotting a famous building or a place.

The book is also full of fun facts and is a souvenir that children will be proud to take home and show their friends.

New books: Wipe clean holiday activities

new books wipe-clean-holiday-activities

Usborne has developed a lot of the wipe-clean books and they are usually very popular with children of all ages. This one is no exception and has holiday-themed activities to keep the little ones busy while you take a break yourself. The educational aspect means that their fine motor skills are perfected as they practice controlling the pen. The activities are varied: counting shells, drawing patterns on the sails of a boat and decorating suitcases …

With the wipe-clean pen it means that children can return to their favourite activities and develop skills while having fun.

New books: Peep inside range

There is a new addition to the “peep inside” range and it is just in time for Spring.

The Peep inside the garden book is for 3 years upwards and is a non-fiction book for little children who will adore lifting the flaps and spotting the insects and animals. Despite this being for younger children my 6 year old enjoys looking at the charming and colourful illustrations.

Have you tried any new books in April?
