What are Usborne Books & More’s Top Five Children’s Books?

#1 All Better!

Publisher: Kane Miller

Dog hurt his foot, Sheep scratched her tummy and Bear sat on a splinter! What will make everything all better? Clean it, kiss it and put a bandage on it! Young readers will delight in the five animal friends’ misadventures and be eager to help make things “all better” with the five reusable and repositionable stickers.

One reader stated:
“Cutest book ever! This book is absolutely adorable. There are five hard plastic bandages that stick on the page (reusable!!). Each page has an animal getting an owie…after the animal gets the owie the book is repetitive…Clean it. Kiss it. Put a bandage on it. All better. Every time I hear my 2 year old say, “All better,” it just melts my heart. 5 stars!   Date: 2/12/2015”

#2 Nibbles: The Book Monster

Publisher: Kane Miller

In this engaging picture book children will be entertained as cute and funny Nibbles actually nibbles his way into 3 fairytales, and while he’s in there he changes the outcome of the stories. They’ll want to read it again and again.

Nibbles is on the loose, and he’s chomping through all of your favorite fairy tales! With books within the book, Emma Yarlett’s utterly appealing artwork, and lots and lots of nibbled holes, this laugh-out-loud funny and ferocious charmer’s unstoppable appetite for the printed page will nibble a hole right through your heart.

“A creative fractured fairy tale of gastronomic proportions (Kid Lit Reviews): “Nibbles will entertain young children who will find his antics wonderful, as he chews and chomps from book to book. Oddly, Nibbles is just the character to encourage young children to nibble their way through books (using their eyes to chomp each page). As Nibbles ravenously feeds from book-to-book, so can children. Nibbles the Book Monster will become a favorite of monster-loving boys and girls.”
