    As a child, the travel map we used had a picture atlas on the exterior. I spent so much time pouring over that cover that I still remember, as a result, which states produce oil. Here’s an opportunity to provide that experience for your elementary children. The actual atlas is in the first 24 pages. The remaining pages are filled with over 350 stickers to place in the appropriate atlas location. Children can easily find the correct location by finding the “shadowed” picture of the sticker. But it’s not just pictures here! Each map has information and details regarding animals, culture and geographical locations in small, clear print. Maps include one of the world; Western and Eastern Europe; North and South Africa; Western and Eastern Asia; North and Central America; South America; Australasia and Oceania; the Antarctic and Antarctica. End the book with a brief world quiz to test your new knowledge. Once done, you’ll have a picture atlas to continually use! Just wonderful! 9 3/8” x 12”, 34 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    These are not your typical activity books. Kids will learn interesting things about a wide variety of topics and use their math and logic skills, too. Each book contains engaging multi-colored illustrations packed with doodles, mazes, puzzles, games, and even recipes. Activities vary from quickly done to more involved and also include some “get active” ideas so kids can have fun beyond the book. Titles center on themes: Amazing (originally for boys) and Fabulous (originally for girls) span a variety of themes including flowers, sea creatures, fairies and princesses, race cars; they have now each been updated to maintain a multi-gender appeal.

     Made with paper from a sustainable source, each of these well-compiled activity books contains approximately 200 stickers to use on the pages; answers to activities are in the back. Consumable, not reproducible. 8.5” x 11”, 96 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    This is a fun little book that is a self-contained gift for someone special. It includes a hardcover, but spiral-bound book with 60 pages of fun activity pages to complete. Attached to the extended back cover is a large inkpad (about 2” x 7”) with 7 bright rainbow colors and a lid. The idea is that your child adds their fingerprints to the illustrated pages. When the ink dries, you can draw on your fingerprint and make a little character. Since each of the colors on the inkpad touch each other, you can even get some fun color blends going! If you want to switch colors, just wipe off your finger with a wet wipe or paper towel and keep printing away! When you are all done, wash hands with soap & water. With the spiral binding, the pages lie nice and flat as you are working on your masterpiece. Something like this would be a great sibling gift or for someone with a new baby. 10” x 8.5” overall, book is 7” x 8.5” ~ Sara

    Punch out and assemble the sturdy pieces, then have a battle! This building set has over 90 pieces that are printed on both sides and are die cut (the castle pieces as well as two opposing armies’ worth of soldiers). They assemble with slots and the directions are pretty simple to follow. The pieces themselves are like a layer of craft foam sandwiched between two layers of cardstock. The included 40 pages softcover book contains info about the different kinds of soldiers included (axe men, kings, queens, knights, assassins, archers, and more!) as well as life in the castle. Everything fits nicely inside of a colorful box for safe keeping. Great for your castle enthusiast or as a way to bring history to life! – Laura

    Mazes help kids develop skills they don’t even realize. Add to the fun with these 30 tear-off, fun mazes to solve. The top cover is detached so kids can easily tear the sheets from the pads. Pages are multicolored and mazes are varied. In addition, each big page features things to spot and places to fill in with drawings. The back is made of sturdy cardboard so it can be used just about anywhere. Scenes include a range: outer space, nature, modern and ancient, etc. Note: includes one spooky streets scene with zombie-like characters. In the back, you’ll find smaller, full-color images pictured with answers. Keep some on hand in the car; they would make great placemat activities at restaurants, for example. 14” x 11”. ~ Ruth
