Who is done with their Christmas shopping? While I'm almost there, you won't see me raising my hand. We got a late start this year because of our vacation, so I've been scoping out the deals and shopping online this week, just so my kids don't think Santa forgot our house when they wake up on Christmas morning. Yeah, like I would let that happen!
My shopping this week has consisted of toys, toys, and more toys, because, you know, my kids need more toys. When I was sent information about a new series of books by Capstone Young Readers, a light bulb went off in my head...I should get my kids some BOOKS for Christmas! My kids do love to read, and unfortunately, we don't do enough of it. Perhaps if Santa leaves some books under the tree, we'll turn off the TV in the evenings and do what we should be doing in the first place - read.
We recently attended the book fair at Rylie's school, and I loved how the books were laid out by reading level. We didn't have time to flip through a gazillion books to find out which ones were appropriate for Rylie, so the marked sections made our shopping much easier. When I started looking around at the Capstone Young Readers website, I found that it was laid out in the same manner, and I was able to easily find the books that are appropriate for my kids' ages.
One of the newest offerings in the preschool books section is the Destruction Series by Erin Edison. These books are perfect for Bryce, who is fascinated by all things that blow up or crash! These sturdy board books feature big, bright images and movable parts that allow the reader to blow it up, knock it down, crush and shred it -- perfect for little ones like mine who are mesmerized by destruction!
- Blow It Up! - Boom and bam! Down it comes. Watch a building, a bridge, and a stadium get blown to pieces.
- Crush It! - Crunch and crack! A car goes in the crusher. Watch cars get smashed and mashed.
- Knock It Down! - Wham and whack! The wrecking ball hits a wall. Watch a building get knocked to the ground.
- Shred It! - Rip and roar! Tires go in the shredder. Watch tires get torn to tiny pieces.
The Destruction Series books are available through Capstone Young Readers for $9.99 each. At the time of this post, free shipping was being offered through December 22 with the code CYRFREE.
This series of books is only one of the many book offerings you will find at Capstone. There is literally something for every reading level. From picture books for the youngest readers to novels for the advanced readers, and even how-to and craft books, there is something for everyone. If you, like me, have hit your limit with toy buying and want to give your kids the gift of reading this holiday season, make sure you check out Capstone Young Readers today!
